Identify Base Words, Prefixes, and Suffixes

Students identify word parts—including prefixes, base words, and suffixes—in this helpful grammar worksheet! Designed for third graders, this worksheet begins with examples of word parts and a review of how base words, prefixes, and suffixes combine to create new words with different meanings. Then students are presented with 12 words and asked to identify the word parts present in each one. Learners will analyze and dissect words such as softly, reappear, and disappointment, recording the base word and prefix and/or suffix for each. This worksheet is a wonderful way to help students build a strong foundation in language and vocabulary, enhancing their ability to recognize and decode new words they encounter in their reading.
