Prefix/Suffix: Build a Word

This Prefix/Suffix: Build a Word lesson plan also includes:

You've never seen Chutes and Ladders like this; scholars review prefix and suffix examples as they move along the game board. Small groups get a deck of six cards with given prefixes and suffixes and a number on each card. The instructions are inconsistent with what numbers to put on the cards, but one or two works best. Players draw a card, moving their piece along the printable game board, which has spaces with root words. If the affix can be attached to the root word they land on, they stay on the space. If not, they move back one. There are some fun twists in this game, and you'll find differentiation ideas here, too.
