Determine the Meaning of a Word Using Knowledge of Base Words and Affixes

Affixes can change the entire meaning of a word! Pupils practice with three prefixes and three suffixes in this scaffolded word meaning resource. There are affix cards here you can display in a pocket chart as you review. Learners first watch you add them to various words and observe the changing definitions. They determine which of the words fits best into a sentence and create definitions in their own words. The class engages with you as you move through this lesson, slowly taking on more independent practice. Although it is essentially scripted, you can easily use this just as an outline.
