Have students work in groups of two or three to make word cards for the spelling words minus their prefixes: -manent, -mission, and so on. Each group will need a spinner showing the prefixes per-, pre-, and pro-. After spreading out the word cards, players will take turns spinning, choosing a word card to go with the prefix, and spelling the word aloud. If correct, the player keeps the card. If, after several rounds, no word cards remain to go with a particular prefix, the player spins again. The player with the most cards wins.
