Painting with Prefixes

I found the most ADORABLE Prefix Crafitvity by Deb Hanson, and I loved making it with my students.  I am trying several different strategies to get them to remember prefixes, and this is one that really hit home with them!  The students made little paint palates that focused on a certain prefix.  


You can see the process of my littles making the craft...  They picked a prefix, and then cut paint shapes to glue on.  What is amazing about 4th grade, is I don't have to prep as much!  They can make a lot of the craftivities on their own!





This prefix craftivity warms my heart because I miss Kindergarten SO MUCH!!! (I can't talk about it, I tear up!)  ANNNNND my bulletin board is bright and colorful...aka my heart is full! :)


I wanted to share one one of our engagement photos that were taken by the amazing Ashley Rose.  We were out in San Juan Capistrano last weekend as she captured our feeling awkward smiling at each other love.  She took this one with her phone, so I can't imagine what the edited ones look like! :)
