We have this lovely tree we have been using all year to incorporate the seasons and our lessons. We had already created a subject and predicate tree for fall, but wanted to come up with something for winter. We decided to use it to display our prefixes and suffixes we have been learning in class. Ms. Carrie, our assistant and the art teacher, made all of it : icicles with prefixes, nutrients in the ground were suffixes, and the roots for the tree were the root (base) words. She even made a chart for both, with definitions, that was posted for reference if the students need it later. The lessons to incorporate the tree were fun because we got learn the different meanings and place all the words along with the prefixes/suffixes on the tree.
