Word Analysis Task Cards: Vocabulary, Parts of Speech, Spelling & More.
Use these 32 “This Word,” task cards to help your students gain a deeper understanding of how words are formed and used. Each card presents a different word and three statements about that word. The challenge is to correctly identify the statement that is not true. Students must apply knowledge of the following concepts to complete these cards:
prefixes, suffixes, and base words
parts of speech
synonyms, antonyms, and homophones
irregular spellings/letter combinations
These cards would be perfect for reinforcement, review, test prep, and assessment. They would work well at a center or would also be good to do with a group as many of the cards can lead to discussion.
The cards were made to be printed in color, but will print out fine in gray scale too. They should print out with even margins around the cards; however, because every printer is different, it is possible that you may need to adjust your printer settings. Selecting “actual size” or adjusting the size percentage should do the trick. Cut the cards apart using the dotted guidelines (discarding the bottom strip). Laminate if possible. Another option is to print on cardstock.
