St. Pat's -ly Hunt -- Freebie

When I was a Common Core Coach for our state this summer, almost every group of teachers I worked with wanted to discuss Reading Foundations Skill 3.3.a: Identify and know the meaning of the most common prefixes and derivational suffixes.

A derivational suffix changes the meaning of the word and usually changes the part of speech of the word. For instance, happy is an adjective. If you add the suffix -ly to happy, it becomes happily,  an adverb.

Today's freebie gives your kiddos a chance to get up out of their seat and find the adjectives on cards you have hidden around the room. They record the adjectives and add -ly to make the word an adverb. Once they have the new word, they must write a sentence containing the word.
