Week 16: Word Sort

Spelling Pattern
Word Building with Affixes

Sort these words into three columns:  words like carefully (base word + suffix or suffixes), words like prehistory (prefix + base word), and words like impersonate (prefix + base word + suffix or suffixes).  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.
