Prefixes

A prefix is a letter; or group of letters; for example “un-” or “pre-“, amongst others.  When these letters are added to the beginning of a word, it forms a different word, i.e. “tie” and “untie”; or “view” and “preview”.  The fascinating thing is that prefix can be interchangeable, i.e. “untie” can also be “retie”, etc.

Description

Prefixes and suffixes often get confused.  Prefixes are a little easier to identify, because “pre-” indicates before, offering children a clue as to whereabouts the letters are added to the root word.

Once children have worked through the examples that we include, the teacher could ask them to attempt to find their own ‘new’ words, that can be changed by the addition of a prefix.  This activity could produce some hilarious responses.

Examples

untie microscope
preview nonessential
disappear postwar
