Fall Harvest Roots and Affixes Activities with Free Printables

I've always enjoyed studying English. It has been a delight to pass this passion on to my children as we dig into so many language concepts this year, including roots and affixes.

When language concepts are presented using seasonal themed Montessori-inspired activities and printables, they're sure to be a hit.  We hope you enjoy our Fall Harvest Roots and Affixes Activities with Free Printables as much as we have!  
Fall Harvest Roots and Affixes
Here's what the kiddos have been up to!

Fall Harvest Compound Words

Bulldozer loves compound words right now.  What he didn't know is that they're created using two root words.  This activity has been the perfect way to teach him that concept.  All of the kiddos have enjoyed building Fall themed compound words.

Fall Harvest Prefixes
Fall Harvest Prefix
Once the kiddos understood what root words were, we were able to introduce prefixes.  The kiddos were fascinated with this activity and loved learning what some prefixes mean. They match the word with the definition using the pictures as clues. The prefix is highlighted in red on each card.

Fall Harvest Suffixes

After root words and prefixes comes suffixes.  Boy did the kiddos love this activity.  They found it so incredibly fun to make words using the suffixes provided. They laughed at the "silly" words they made while trying to match up the proper word and suffix, which led to a genuine "a-ha" moment every time.
