Teach and review basic word study techniques—and reinforce reading fluency—with this unit that focuses on prefixes and suffixes! Includes three prefix lessons, three suffix lessons, and one combined lesson.
- underline the prefix in each word, then write the base word without the prefix
- read a paragraph, circle the words with suffixes, then answer questions
- from a word list write the prefix and the suffix in each word, then write the base word
Common Core Alignments:
Review, review, review. For example, when students are working on this lesson about prefixes and suffixes, they will also encounter various vowel and consonant sounds. Take a minute to remind students about what they already know about those sounds!
