Prefix Practice

Prefix Practice

When reviewing word parts with your child, be sure to explain why it is essential to learn the definitions of prefixes, which will help them to decipher unfamiliar words. The definitions can become clues to figure out word meanings. Share a list of words with a certain prefix, then challenge your child to add more words to the list. Discuss meanings and how the word changes when the prefix changes.
