Young scholars learn to find meaning in words using affixes with a language arts activity. Working in pairs, children sort cards with sentences printed on them that include words with the prefixes mis- and pre- and the suffixes -er, -ness, and -able. Then, using knowledge of the base word and affix, students determine the meaning of each term. This collaborative activity would work nicely as a center during language arts rotations in most elementary grade levels.
- Suggestions are offered for extending or adapting the activity to meet the needs of all students
- A graphic organizer is provided for exploring words with other affixes
- Assumes learners are familiar with the meanings of the base words used in the activity
