While preparing for my small reading groups, I began thinking about word work. For my group of fifth graders, our phonics is more focused on affixes, roots and multisyllabic words rather than vowel teams and blends. So I made a concentration game for word work, focusing on prefixes. Then I made one for suffixes. Then I started making one for roots, but realized I had been way too productive for Saturday morning and turned on Netflix instead :)
You can grab these mega centers here at my TpT store.
Each is $2 and includes 28 pages (what a steal!).
After sorting and matching, you can have students write in their word work notebooks about how prefixes impact a word's meaning as well as make their own.
Hope your students enjoy this center as much as mine do!
