Prefix Match

We have now moved on to prefixes! I took our suffix activity from last week and adapted it for prefixes. The kids really enjoyed putting the pieces together and changing the meaning of the words. We started by looking at the prefix posters and talking about how the meanings of the words changed with the prefix added.
Then they each took a bag and began matching prefixes and base words. I had the bags in a pink sand bucket for the kids to trade out for the next set of words. (We did this same activity with suffixes, so the kids were able to work very independently.)
And there ya go! Easy peasey, lemon squeezy! To get this activity click here!
