Prefix Cards with Definitions Illustrations and Examples
Prefix Cards with Definitions Illustrations and Examples. Use these Illustrated Prefix Cards to keep your students engaged in fun activities that reinforce the definition of each prefix and examples of words that take on the meaning of the prefix when it is added to them.

Over two dozen of the most common prefixes are used in these cards, they are: mis, de, a, ab, abs, fore, tri, pre, re, dis, in, dif, semi, micro, ex, un, *im, sub, inter, pro, *im, tele, bi, super, under.

*Note that the prefix 'im-' has two meanings; one is 'into' and the other is 'not', so I have created two separate cards for the prefix 'im-'.

These cards are created in two different sizes. The original set has 8 cards per page and the larger set has 4 cards per page. The small set will save you ink and paper but many teachers have indicated to me that they preferred to have a larger set to make a bulletin board display. So, that's why I added the larger version.

For Grades 3-5. 13 Pages.
