Negative Prefixes

 

Teaching students to use correct prefixes can be both fun and challenging. This post contains three resources to help teach negative prefixes:

  • A mnemonic device anchor chart helps students remember when to use il-, im-, in-, ir-, and ig-.
  • A teaching video ~~ I found this video extremely helpful. It’s length is a little under 15 minutes long. This might lose some students, but I found watching it helped me to know how best to present the material to my students.
  • A free printable booklet to use in the classroom ~~ This mini book takes just three sheets of paper plus an optional cover for each booklet. Students can use this to make their own reference book. LeMoNRiG Anchor Chart helps students know when to use the prefixes il-, im-, in-, ir-, or ig.

I ran across this mnemonic device and knew that it would be a great way for my students to remember when to use il-, im-, in-, ir-, and ig-.
