These fun, engaging activities teach prefixes, suffixes, and new vocabulary. Each lesson includes activities where the student chooses the correct vocabulary word used in context, identifies the prefix or suffix, and solves a jumble puzzle that reinforces the lesson. The jumble puzzle is the punchline to a joke or riddle that is solved by unscrambling a set of words related to the lesson. In order to solve the jumble, students must first unscramble a set of vocabulary words related to the lesson. Each unscrambled word is a clue to the answer of the joke or riddle. The final step of the jumble puzzle is to look for multiple word meanings, synonyms, homographs, homophones, idioms, or figurative language to identify the answer to the joke or riddle. Students LOVE jumbles and each jumble reinforces the lesson. Try a sample (above) and you'll be hooked! A complete answer key is included.
