…Prefix and Suffix Task Cards for ELLs…

Learning about prefix and suffixes can help increase a students vocabulary. When they learn about the meaning of common affixes the are able to greatly increase the number of words that they understand and can use. Reading vocabulary words in context helps to give them greater meaning than when they are in isolation.

I created a set of prefix and suffix task cards to help my ELLs read affixes in the context of a short paragraph. This set of task cards is geared towards third or fourth grades that are reading below grade level. They allow the students to independently read the sentences and focus on finding the words with affixes.

How to use the prefix and suffix task cards

Students can use highlighters or dry erase markers to highlight on the task cards. Or use a recording sheet where they write down the number of the task card along with the affixes that they find.
