This colourful PowerPoint aims to teach learners about the structure of words in the English language. Numerous examples are given to help learners think of their own root words, suffixes and prefixes.
Covers both regular and irregular plurals (10).
The great thing about this activity is that it is created from a template (available in the Activity Toolkit, in the Smart Notebook Gallery) and can be quickly and easily edited to include specific spellings for your students.

Syllables Millionaire is a great PowerPoint game in the style of ‘Who wants to be a Millionaire’, including embedded sound. Focuses on the use of syllables as a spelling aid – with graduated questions. The PPT file can easily be edited and used to check learning at the end of any literacy or numeracy topic that lends itself to a quiz format.
