Prefixes and Suffixes

Prefixes and Suffixes still seem to be difficult for my class. I have been spiraling this concept throughout the year but, some students still get confused. I decided to go ahead and make a prefix and suffix unit. I wanted to try to make it fun so I came up with an ice cream activity.

There are posters that I made explaining what prefixes and suffixes are. They can be used to introduce prefixes and suffixes or for review. Click on the link below to download them. I hope you enjoy them.

There is also a workstation or small group activity with this unit. The students have ice cream scoops that have prefixes on one and the base word on the other. They have to match the correct prefix and base word and then put it on top of the ice cream cone. There are also suffixes that have base words and suffixes that are matched and put into an bowl.

I have also made a comprehension page with a nonfiction story about ice cream. All the questions ask about prefixes and suffixes.
