This slide show covers around 70 most common word parts
(suffixes, roots, prefixes).
Whole Class, Verbal Option
The game/activity directions are stated at the beginning, with practice slides - say the word part on the screen, say the definition, then state an example word - there are prompts throughout so the students know what to do. How challenging it is depends on how quickly you move through the activity, which is up to whoever is running the slideshow (teacher or student).
Independent Work, Written Option
Another (less lively) version of this activity is to have students write down the word part, the meaning, and 2-3 example words (E.g. re- / do again / revisit, revise, redact)
>Appropriate for grade 6+
>This is a particularly valuable test prep exercise. Knowledge of word parts gives students the ability to make 'smart guesses' when they don't have an answer.
>The last 6 slides have all the word parts, meanings, and example words in the order presented in the slide show.
