I recently shared a trio of video lessons on suffixes, and I chose to target word stress patterns based on the endings:
The patterns will have a much better chance of sticking if students have the opportunity to put them into practice. I’d like to share a set of 12 discussion questions that require students to form new words based on visual cues and context. The PowerPoint slides can be shared with the whole class, small groups, or pairs. A follow-up task could be to have the students create their own discussion questions using additional words ending with the target suffixes. (The Free Dictionary is a helpful resource to find words that end with a suffix.)
