Week 6: Word Sort

Spelling Pattern
Word Building with Affixes

Sort these words into three columns: words like division (base word + suffix), words like discourage (prefix + base word), and words like undertaker (prefix + base word + suffix). You may cut the words out and paste them into columns. You may color code the words into groups, color-coding the category names, too. Or you may simply write or type the words below the appropriate category title.
