Prefix/Suffix Sentence Change

This Prefix/Suffix Sentence Change lesson plan also includes:

Sentences take on very different meanings with the simple addition of an affix! Small groups use blank sentence strips to practice this concept with prefixes and suffixes you have been learning. First, each scholar writes a sentence with one word that can have an affix added to it. Then, they give it to another group member who figures out where it can be added. What does this new sentence mean? See which groups can come up with the silliest, most opposite, or most interesting sentence changes. Project the affixes they can use so groups can see them while doing this.
