This lesson includes 5 printable learning activities
Adding Suffixes with Trucks
On the road again! Floyd is collecting cargo and needs help. In this game, kids combine root words with suffixes to create new words. Perfect for practising spelling, players must adjust a root word by adding or removing letters before adding a suffix. By creating new words, kids will improve their vocabulary and master word adjustment.
Adding Suffixes
Teach students how to change the meaning of words by adding suffixes with this simple exercise.
Sentence Building: Homophones
Understanding homophones is crucial for helping fifth graders master spelling, reading, and defining common words. In this game, kids demonstrate their understanding of different similar-sounding words by selecting the correct choice for each sentence. Each time they select the correct homophone to complete the sentence, they help Floyd Snow build another layer of his wall.
Homophones 3
Students will hone their ability to identify differences between homophones with this final exercise in the series.
Spelling Long Words Adventure
Ready to go on an adventure? Floyd Danger is going on a quest to find the golden dictionary, but he needs kids' help to spell multisyllable words with long vowels. Breaking words apart into smaller syllables is a helpful spelling strategy, so kids will get plenty of practise while playing this fun game. A layer of fun—coins, treasures, and obstacles—will make kids want to play over and over again!
Long Vowels in Multi-Syllable Words
Students who complete this exercise will have no problem pronouncing those long syllables in multi syllable words.
