    Word Identification 2-- Prefix Pots of Gold: Use construction paper to create pots for "gold." Label each pot with one prefix. Additionally, create gold pieces that will be labeled with a root word. Have your students make words by taping a gold pieced root word to a matching prefix pot. While this activity is themed for St. Patrick's Day, the same concept will work for other holidays. Have the students share their pot of words with you!

    Word Identification #2-This is a 2nd grade teacher's blog. There are many great activities and classroom ideas on here but this St. Patrick's activity was perfect for an affix, root, or base word activity. The students can place/match up the different gold pieces that contain a word to a appropriate root, base of affix word. This can be adapted for any holiday or theme.

This is a great way for students to learn their prefixes. Under each flap their is a list of words that uses each prefix. This is a good tool to have when students are writing. They could do this in their writing journals so when they are stuck they know where it is.

Students simply match the word to the affix and then record their work on the included recording sheet.
