  • Read a grade-level passage, identifying words with suffixes
  • Determine the meaning of a word containing a suffix.

  • Complete sentences using context clues and words that contain suffixes.

Using Your Suffix Passage Worksheets

In addition to individual student work time, use this worksheet as a:
