Magnetic Suffixes

At this point in the school year, I have put away the majority of my word work centers so that students can focus more on comprehension and extension skills.  However, I have some students who need practice adding suffixes to verbs. They have trouble making spelling changes and using irregular verb forms.  I created an activity where students have the root/base word (verb) written on a paint sample card along with suffixes to change the verb. They must use magnetic letters to write the new word forms.  To check their work, they turn the cards over to compare the answer key with their spelling.
