Your students will create easy-to-read "flip books" that will allow them to form prefixes and suffixes! Each mini-booklet is on a single piece of paper for ease of use! The students cut out 8 small cards and staple them to a ninth that forms the back, to create a booklet in which the cards are "flipped" up to create a new word each time.

For example, for the "pre-" book the students read "precaution." They flip up the word caution to reveal the word historic while the prefix pre remains. They then read "prehistoric." This continues with predetermine, preschool, preview, pretestpreshrunk and others to give them a total of nine different words all formed using the prefix pre. Each page also includes a definition of the prefix or suffix. The prefix "pre" means "before, earlier, or in front of." In this way the students can actually see how a word changes by placing a prefix in front, or a suffix behind. As they flip through the nine words in each booklet, they internalize the meaning. This sure beats fil-in-the-blank worksheets!

The following prefixes are covered in this book: bi-, dis-, hydro-, in-, inter-, mis-, pre-, re-, sub-, un- and under-. The following suffixes are also included: -ful, -less, -ly, -ment, -ness and -ship.
