  1. Another wonderful resource to support the explicit instruction of morphology and how these prefixes change the meaning of words. Great to connect with etymology as well.

  2. These slides are a good start to systematically introduce students to various affixes. You could add extension activities to accompany the slide decks like word sums, word sorts, matching words to definitions, or having students create their own sentences with the focus concept.
