Color the Suffixes Worksheets
Suffixes are word parts that are added to the end of base words that change the meaning of a word. Take for example the word care. If you add the suffix –less, the word becomes careless. The meaning has been changed to not caring.
Recognizing how suffixes and base words work together to form longer words is a great strategy for reading longer words. Not only that, learning the meanings of suffixes is a FANTASTIC way to work on vocabulary and parts of speech!
Included in this color the suffixes pack are pages for -y, -ly, -ily, -less, -ness, -ful, -est, and -er,
plus three mixed review pages.
Learners color the prefixes first using marker or highlighters first, then read the words out loud.
After all the words have been read, talk about the suffix and how it changes the meaning of the word. You could even look up some words in a dictionary.
On the mixed review pages, ask learners to color code the suffixes at the top of the page.
Then they use their color code to color in the suffixes, and then read them aloud.
The mixed review pages do not include the meaning of each suffix, so you’ll need to work with learners to help them figure a few of them out. Once the review pages have been colored and read, ask learners to tell you what each suffix means. Or have learners flip on the back and write the meanings.
