Set 3 FIX

More Detail on Set 3

For the development of prefixing and suffixing skills in reading and spelling. In Games 1, 2, 3 and 4, use of common suffixes and the repetition of root words aims to generalise and simplify the spelling rules.

Note: FIX is played by the same rules as SWAP. It is essentially the same game as SWAP, but we named it FIX to highlight the fact that the FIX games deal with prefixes and suffixes.

Game 1
