Prefixes

Prefixes

Have your child create a chart of different prefixes in the English language. Remember that prefixes always come at the beginning of a word. Examples of common prefixes include: pre, un, and dis. If they see or hear words with these prefixes throughout the day, invite your child to add them to the chart.
