Prefixes Level 2 – Word Study
This prefix word study is more than a matching game. Children learn how to ‘break’ prefixes off a word and then come up with a definition based on the parts.
A problem I saw in other word study programs was that children would match word parts to find words that “sounded right”, but they never learned what the prefixes actually meant. Due to the complex layers of English writing, this is an essential skill for students as they move to more complex text.

The Rhyme and Reason word study program relies heavily on root words, prefixes and suffixes and that philosophy is reflected in this card set.
