  • Use a partitioned buffet style paper plate, so the children can physically sort the words! Great time saver having the cards ready, thank you!

This great sorting activity features three boxes; prefixes, root words, and suffixes. Simply cut out the word cards and sort them into the appropriate box.
This resource is available in Standard, Cursive, Super Eco Black and White and Larger Text.
