These combinations of color-coded prefix and base cards can be used in several activities to introduce students to making words and antonyms with prefixes. You can use these as a game or just a warm-up vocabulary activity before any class. Use the large spinner wheel to create an exciting contest where students can compete by matching words to prefixes as quickly as possible.
- 8 1/2 x 11 color-coded base word cards
- 8 1/2 x 11 matching color-coded prefix cards
- Word-builder activity sheets from the Prefix-Smart Workbook
- Large spinner wheel with color-coded prefixes
*** Please note that each of the large base cards has the matching prefix in the upper left-hand corner of the card. This will also tell you which color you should use when printing the card. I would suggest printing the cards on colored construction paper.
Use the color-coded chart, which is also reflected on the spinner wheel, to print the cards in the colors associated with each prefix.
