First, I copy the word cards on cardstock and laminate them. I use a different color for each set of words (prefix, suffix, stem). I make 5 sets.
Monday- I hand out the study guide and use the "What is a Prefix" poster to reteach prefixes. I then have students look up words for anti- in class and we fill out a Word Web together on our smart board. I break the kids into groups and they play concentration with the prefix cards. For homework, I ask them to come up with one word for each of the prefixes and tell them to study all the prefixes.
Tuesday- I divide the prefixes up into groups of four. I have the students in each group share their homework and fill out a Word Web for each of the words they were given. You can even have them draw the word web on a big piece of bulletin board paper. Then I have them share their group work with the whole class.
That same day I introduce suffixes using the "What is a suffix?" poster. We do one together, play the concentration game with just suffixes, and find a word example for homework.
Wednesday- We share homework with groups again, fill out Word Webs and share with class.
That same day, I introduce stem words using the "What is a Stem?" poster. We do one together, play the concentration game with just stem words, and find a word example for homework.
Thursday- We share homework with groups again, fill out Word Webs and share with class.
We then play concentration using all the words! For homework, they need to study their word sheet.
