Teaching prefixes and suffixes? Want a game that your students will LOVE playing?
The Prefix/Suffix Matching BAM! game is a memory game with a twist to practice the meanings of common prefixes and suffixes: un, re, pre, -able, -ful, and -less. Matching BAM is played the same as the traditional memory match game, but with a twist! When a student finds a BAM card, their turn is over, and they keep the BAM card. The game is great to have on hand as an extension activity for early finishers, a remediation activity led by a volunteer or paraprofessional, or as a review prior to standardized testing.
