Root and Affix Bundle

This bundle contains the Word-Building Suffixes, Common Prefixes, and Using Word Roots to Understand Vocabulary packets, but costs over 15% less as a bundle than each packet would cost individually. It has 55 pages of explanation, practice, and game activities in addition to answer keys for each worksheet.

It's a good introduction to word decoding and gives a basic understanding of how prefixes, roots and suffixes work together to show word meanings.

It includes examples, explanation, practice worksheets, and game ideas, including:

> 7 pages of suffix worksheets as well as explanations, a suffix table with brainstorming ideas, a poster, a quiz, and answer sheets,

> Explanations of the main types of prefixes (including examples of many negative prefixes), 5 pages of worksheets practicing prefixes of various types, a prefix table with suggestions and space for brainstorming more examples,

> Examples and practice (gap-fills, multiple choice, matching, and games) for over 30 important Latin and Greek roots, including 3 pages on Greek roots, 2 on sensory roots (aud, vid, spect, etc.) and 1-2 pages each on words made from cedere (access, exceed, preceding, procedure, successive, etc.), and 2 other especially high-value roots, pointing out Spanish cognates (as well as warning about false cognates like sensible, which means sensitive in Spanish.)

It also includes includes suggestions for teaching roots and practicing them with several games, including 'memory' (or 'Concentration')-- with 4 sets of memory cards to practice 24 words and meanings from the roots in the packet.
