Suffixes and the Sea

Next week our class is working on suffixes, so my teacher friend Lauren suggested creating a fun game to go along with what can be a difficult skill for some first graders. So here ya go! This activity has posters to explain to the kids what -ful, -ly, and -y mean at the end of a word. I am in the process of decorating the room in a ocean/Hawaiian style to get ready for summer, so I HAD to use these cute sea creature graphics from KPM Doodles! Visit my shop on Teachers Notebook to get the full download!

We grouped the like animals into ziplock bags and placed in a sand bucket for the small group. Each student took turns working through a ziploc bag. This one shows the clam puzzles. Each bag contains a -ful, -ly, and -y word. The kids LOVED the sea creatures!
