Instructional Ideas

  • Laminate the cards so that learners can play this game over and over again
  • Challenges individuals to use the affixes to build words and sentences after they complete the game
Classroom Considerations

  • There is another version of this game made by the same publisher, but it has slightly different affixes; this version has additional affixes, so it would be best to use it after some practice (whereas the other version can be an introductory activity)
  • The activity mentions peer evaluation as the final step, but does not elaborate on how to do this
Pros

  • Four pages of affix and meaning cards to cut out for the game
  • Provides clear instructions
Cons

  • None
