Our Common Prefixes/Suffixes lesson plan introduces students to the most common prefixes and suffixes. Through interactive activities, group work, and individual practice, students learn to identify prefixes and suffixes and learn how common prefixes and suffixes can change the meaning of a word. Students are asked to work collaboratively to create as many new words using common prefixes and suffixes. They are also asked to work independently to identify prefixes and suffixes within a story and to match prefixes and suffixes with their definitions to reinforce understanding.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify and know the meaning of the most common prefixes and derivational suffixes.
