December Freebie: Powerful Prefixes

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I will be posting several FREEBIES on my blog leading up to Christmas.  Here is one of my favorites, Powerful Prefixes Mini Matching Cards.  It is helpful for students to know the meaning of common prefixes, as these meanings help them determine the meaning of many unknown words.  For example, if the unknown word is "submarine", and the student knows the meaning of "marine",  and knows that "sub" means "under", then he'll be able to think "submarine means under + marine". 
Each prefix set has three cards:  a prefix card, a meaning card, and a card with examples.

Memory Matching Directions:
My students turn them over so they cannot see the writing, then take turns with a partner turning over three at a time.  If all three are not a match, the cards are turned back over.  Once they locate all three, they keep the match.  The winner is the person with the most matches.
