Attention, teachers and homeschoolers!

We have an exciting free resource to share with you today that will make learning about suffixes an adventurous journey for your grade 1 and grade 2 students. Allow us to introduce the "Colour the Suffix" worksheet!

The "Colour the Suffix" worksheet is a creative and engaging tool designed to help students practice identifying and categorising words with different suffixes.

Through a pirate-themed activity, students will strengthen their understanding of suffixes while improving their reading skills and having fun along the way!

To access the worksheet, simply click the download button located at the bottom of this page. It's completely free and ready to be utilised! Provide students with colouring materials, such as crayons or coloured pencils. Explain to your students that they will be embarking on a pirate treasure hunt! Each pirate treasure picture contains a word with a suffix.

Instruct students to carefully read each word in the pirate treasure pictures and identify the suffix. The three suffixes they will be working with are: "ing," "s," and "ed."

Students should then color the treasure based on the suffix they find. If the word ends with "ing," they color the treasure red. If it ends with "s," they color the treasure blue. If it ends with "ed," they color the treasure green.

Encourage students to take their time and read each word carefully before coloring the treasure. This will help reinforce their understanding of how suffixes work and improve their attention to detail.

Remember, the goal is to make learning about suffixes enjoyable and memorable. By using the "Colour the Suffix" worksheet and incorporating these additional tips, you'll help your grade 1 and grade 2 students strengthen their grammatical skills while embarking on a pirate adventure!
