This is a great exercise for students to learn prefixes. They will never forget them because they are playing games and research has shown that when students play with other students these types of games, they can remember most of it because they’re having fun—but they are learning! Some of the prefixes have the same definition, so I have only included that definition instead of multiple ones.
I have included the game rules in the cards so that the students know the rules and can play it without making mistakes or cheating. It will take time to get used to it, but the students enjoy it once they’ve mastered it. I play the game with them the first time to teach them how it’s played while the rest of the students watch me playing it. It didn’t take too long for them to take over the game.
I have included all the prefixes there are in Spanish, you may want to introduce the cards as you introduce the prefixes or introduce the game once they have learned all the prefixes. There are 50 prefix cards with another 50 cards with the definitions. It’s a big game! You might want to give them 25 cards at the time or have 25 cards in one center and 25 at another center.
I've been a bilingual teacher for almost 20 years. After having a successful business career, I went back to school and studied to be a teacher. I have been in three different districts in the State of Texas, spending my last six years with Fort Bend ISD, Sugar Land, TX. I decided to start this store because I feel there are not enough materials out there for the bilingual, dual, spanish teacher. I know so because I had to translate, design and make my own to use in my classroom. I have been married to Don for 30 years and live in Katy, Texas, with my two Yorkies, Milo and Winston.
