I think this Prefix Packet is my best so far. I made three separate games with 3 separate cards. In my classroom, I store my games in laminated manilla envelopes that have a cover page. This has everything needed for three games plus a pretest and post test and worksheets. I made each game a different color because I’m always finding game pieces around the class and I imagine I’m not the only one. I figured having the cards match the game cover would help you know where those stray pieces belong.
The first game is a sorting game that helps students practice reading the words that will be in the posttest.
Students tend to think that every word that begins with re has the prefix re- . This game lets the students differentiate between the words that have prefixes like rewrite and base words that just happen to have those letters like really. This will help them deeper their understanding of prefixes.
Our state test asks challenging questions that require the students be able to define the meaning of prefixes. This game will help them practice that.
