Finding the base word/3 levels off difficulty
This activity is part of a wider unit that looks at prefixes, suffixes, base words and syllabification. Students simply need to recognize when prefixes and suffixes can be deleted from a word to find the base word. They will need to be reminded to adjust the spelling of some words, ie put the silent 'e' back on the end, or change the 'i' back into a 'y'.
