In this activity, students practice creating words with prefixes and suffixes using context clues. Here’s how the activity works:
Using the Prefix and Suffix Puzzles:
Students match up two puzzle pieces to form words. Students then read the sentences. They select the best word that will fit into the blank space of the sentence from the words that were made by joining together the puzzle pieces.
A “Student Response Sheet” is provided for students to write answers. This is a great activity for a learning center, for morning review, or for differentiated instruction. Also, students do not have to read The Wonderful Wizard of Oz to enjoy using this activity cards.
