Exploring Affixes: Write the affix down. Give an example of a basic word with that affix. Eg. DIS - Dislike. As a class, figure out what it may mean and write down the definition. Students brainstorm examples of other words with those affixes and use dictionaries to see if there is a common meaning for the affix.
This board helps my students remember some of the word parts we have highlighted throughout the year. Greek and Latin word parts are the toughest (we put those in the root section), but once they master them, they can continuously add examples (leaves) throughout the year seeing their vocabulary and the tree get thicker and thicker!
