Prefixes & Suffixes Games: Second Grade No-Prep Phonics


Help your 2nd grade students master prefixes and suffixes with these no-prep phonics games! These hands-on activities are great for centers or independent work. There are options for independent and partner/small group play! This resource will also help you implement the science of reading!

These activities will help you…
- Reinforce your whole group phonics instruction with hands-on practice
- Ensure students can successfully work independently on clear, easy-to-understand activities
- Save tons of prep time
- Get students excited about reading and writing words with prefixes and suffixes!

This resource includes a total of 21 activities (each activity is provided in color and black-and-white). Included are:
- 1 game per individual prefix/suffix (re, un, mis, dis, pre, er, est, ful, ly, less)
- 6 games with mixed prefixes
- 5 games with mixed suffixes

To make it easier for students to remember the directions, there are only 8 different types of activities to teach. Students complete the same type of activity with multiple prefixes and suffixes - but the games still feel “new” because the themes are different! There are also visual reminders on the page to provide support. 

These activities require NO cutting, folding, or any other kind of prep! Simply print and use these sheets. You can place them inside page protectors or laminate them for easy re-use, too. Students will need basic manipulatives (dice and counters) to play.

These activities can supplement any phonics program or work as stand-alone activities for literacy centers or Daily 5.

My file isn’t printing correctly. How do I fix this?

The vast majority of printing problems can be fixed with the “Print as Image” solution in Adobe Reader! Learn more about how to do that here HERE.

Where can I learn more about your literacy products and how to use them?

We have a free catalog that walks you through my main resources. It can help you decide which resources are right for you and your students! You can grab the catalog HERE.

I teach in a split-grade class (i.e. 1st and 2nd). How should I select products for my students?

Alison always recommends getting the lower of the two grade levels. So if you teach in a 1st and 2nd grade class, get a 1st grade version. You can always differentiate in small groups or 1:1 to challenge your more advanced students!

I teach in Canada and am looking to buy some of your literacy products. How does the Canadian curriculum align to the U.S. curriculum?

Our Canadian customers tell us that it’s best to purchase one grade level down. If you teach first grade, for example, try a Kindergarten product. You can also check the preview file of any resource in our TpT store to see example lessons to help you make your decision!

These games are great! I love that there is an assessment with it so I can really see what skills my students need more practice with. Once they learn the games they are able to do them independently as well.

I used this resource when a couple of my students picked decoding multisyllabic words as their goal. This really allowed them to work on their goal independently! I loved that they were able to own their learning.

My students love these games for small groups, and once some of them are able to play them independently, they are able to teach others! Great academic skill review that is fun for them!
