Our Common Prefixes Spelling Patterns lesson plan introduces students to prefixes. Through interactive activities, group work, and individual practice, students learn to identify prefixes and learn how common prefixes can change the meaning of a word. Students are asked to sort their spelling words by prefix, make a “prefix tree” to better visualize the relationship between a prefix and the word it’s attached to, and take a quiz to test their knowledge.
At the end of the lesson, students will correctly identify and use irregular plurals to spell words. Students will synthesize knowledge from the word sort in order to correctly spell transfer (bonus) words.
