Have fun with movement-based prefix activities!
Learning about prefixes can be a fun literacy lesson for middle school students. These mats will help your students learn by turning these lessons into movement-based prefix activities. Students in 3rd grade, 4th grade, and 5th grade will love jumping around these floor mats.
Each mat includes a unique set of prefixes. Each block on the mat includes the prefix, its meaning, an an example word. The large, kid-friendly text and colorful design will keep young learners interested and engaged in learning.
After hopping around on this mat, kids will understand different prefixes and what they mean. Their letter recognition and reading comprehension will also grow. Movement-based activities will boost learning comprehension and help young students develop gross motor skills.
