dandelions and dragonflies: The Root Of It All
Prefix Pockets! I am a math teacher and this would be great with place value pockets!! The pockets can each name a place. The words that are in the pockets can become numbers written in standard, word or expanded form (highlight a number in expanded form and place it in the correct pocket)!! Saaaweeeett!!

Mrs. Rhodes' Scholars: Prefix and Suffix Leaves
Purchase a checkers board (Wal-Mart) and place velcro on the black squares on the game board. Print, laminate, and cut on the following squares on the above template and place corresponding velcro pieces on the back. Place the words with prefixes and suffixes in random order on the game board. Each time a player moves a checker they must say the prefix or suffix, read the word, and explain what it means. (The template "Common Prefixes/Suffixes" from above can help children as they are playing this game).
