Prefixes and Suffixes!

This week we were learning a few prefixes and suffixes! We introduced the lesson with an anchor chart.


Here is a super cute flipchart I found on Promethean Planet. It uses Mr. Potato Head to explain the root word, prefixes and suffixes.  The class loved it! It includes a short quiz at the end. We used our ActivExpressions for this!

 

We then made these flipbooks to add to our reader's notebooks.  We used the books to quiz partners on prefixes and suffixes.

  2. I just found this while searching for ideas for introducing prefixes and suffixes. Don't have a promethean board but found a different video I plan to use. I love your flipbooks and thank you for sharing them!

  10. Those having problems with Mr. Potato Head lesson - it is a Promethean board lesson which requires ActivInspire software. If you don't have the software, it won't work.
