Prefix Foldable

This past week in Spelling, our 5th graders learned about the prefixes re-, un-, and non-. In order to understand how these prefixes change the meaning of base words, students created a foldable. For each spelling word, the students applied the meaning of the prefix to help define the word. Check out some of the foldables below!

Quiz, Quiz, Trade

To prepare for the spelling test, our “spellers” participated in an interactive review game. Each “speller” received an index card with a spelling word written on it. Their task was to move around the room and quiz another student on their word. Once they quized a peer, and the peer quized them, the students then traded their cards and continued to quiz another person with a different card. This activity allowed students to gauge which spelling words they needed to focus on when preparing for their test.
