Magic Prefixes - Freebie

My kids had a hard time coming down from their Halloween high! I needed to get them up and moving to work off some of that excess energy.
This prefix activity was perfect for a whole group activity.
There are four "magic prefix" cards for four students to hold up. Other students walk around and try to buddy up with a prefix card to make a new word. The class keeps a list of the new words on the board. Some root words can be paired with more than one prefix.
After making a list, students break off into small groups and choose two or three words to use in sentences.
Just click on the pic above to get the activity.

    1. Thanks, Elaine. I gave my kids a pointer to use as a magic wand when they were working with this. It added just the right little zing to it!
