Teaching prefixes and suffixes in first and second grade can be challenging, but with the right activities, it can be easier! These prefix and suffix reading passages are designed to help your students decode different words with suffixes and prefixes.
It is so important for our students to see the reading skills their learning within a text. However, it can be a challenge to find the proper grade-level text with prefix and suffix words! That’s why these reading passages are perfect for that! Your students will become fluent with prefixes and suffixes, while also gaining confidence and mastery. They will develop deeper reading comprehension by reading the passage multiple times and with the comprehension questions at the end.
These prefix and suffix short passages provide opportunities for word work, fluency, comprehension, and vocabulary building. On each page, students find the words, highlight them, and write them with the root word.
They are completely no prep activities! Just run through the copier and you are good to go for your lesson! These passages were written for 1st and 2nd grade students.
