This Prefix/Suffix Detective lesson plan also includes:
Turn your readers into prefix and suffix detectives as they play this word-hunting game. Scholars compete as they search books to find and record as many words with affixes as they can in seven minutes (or a time frame that works for your class). Think about incorporating some type of definition aspect into this game. Perhaps learners could categorize their words into know and don't know columns and define them once the activity is over. Consider creating an incentive to find a word no one in the class has heard of.
