Improve students' understanding of the suffix -ment with a printable suffix worksheet.
Accessible and Engaging Daily Vocabulary Practice
Do you have your students practice using new words each day? If not, you should definitely give it a try! By practicing vocabulary with suffixes on a daily basis, students can better understand and analyze more challenging texts. They’ll be able to quickly identify and understand words they haven’t seen before by recognizing the suffix and understanding its meaning.
Daily vocabulary practice with suffixes also helps students build their own vocabulary. By learning new words with suffixes, they’ll be able to create and understand more complex words and ideas. It’s like giving them a toolbox of language skills that they can use to express themselves more effectively.
