Identifying Roots and Inflectional Forms Worksheets

Related ELA Standard: L.1.4.C

Whenever you build anything, you need to start with a foundation or base. When we are building words these foundations are called root words. Many root words can stand on their own as words. To change the grammatical nature of words we can add extra letters to create an inflection. By adding a few letters to the end of a word (inflection) results in the meaning or purpose of the word transforming to something else entirely. You will see this will often shift between singular and plural meanings. These worksheets will help students be able to breakdown roots and add inflectional forms.
