Since my Introduction to Prefixes pack has been such a HUGE hit, I have been working hard to push out a suffixes version!
Are you looking for a great way to introduce and work on understanding/using suffixes?! Are you looking for a way to build vocabulary in a way that can be easily carried over?! This activity pack is for you!
It is important for language delayed students to understand roots, prefixes, and suffixes of words. This will help them to determine meaning of unknown vocabulary words when they see them in texts, listening activities, or conversations. It will also help them use common vocabulary words appropriately.
What is included in this pack?!
-Suffix visual with definition is provided.
-5 common suffixes are introduced. For each one:
-Visual is provided
-Poster with 6 sample words to start with has been provided. I recommend using this poster to show students how the meaning of the word changes when you add the suffix. “What’s the meaning of the root word?” “Now, add the suffix, what is the meaning now?”
-Memory matching: Students can match the root word to the word with the suffix to practice expressing how the words go together and how the meanings change.
-Memory matching: Students can match the word with the suffix to its definition.
-Review worksheet: The 6 words used in the poster are used in cloze sentences. Students can read the sentences, determine its meaning and select which word would best fit the sentence. I did not include a word bank because you can use the poster as a word bank if desired.
*Different colored borders are used for each suffix to make it easy to grab and go!
**A review chart with all the suffixes is provided as well as a review worksheet using all 5 suffixes and a “who can name more” worksheet to see who can use more words with each suffix (great for carryover of skill).
