Connector: Today, we are going to discover the meaning of words by identifying a word’s prefix and root word. Relevancy: Identifying a word’s prefix or root word will help the reader uncover a word’s meaning.
1. What are root words and prefixes? 2. How do root words and prefixes help to create words? 3. Why are prefixes and root words used to aid a reader in comprehending a word?
Understanding: Root Words and Prefixes THE BODY PARTS OF A WORD
Definitions: 1. Root Word: A root word is the foundation on which a word is built. 1. Prefix: A prefix is a letter or syllable that is added to the root of a word in order to form a new word with a different meaning.

Directions: You are going to get this sheet from your teacher. Each web represents a prefix you have learned in the previous slide. In the center of the web, you are going to write the prefix word. In the connecting circles, you are going to write a word that has that prefix in it. You will have five words per graphic organizer. Below each web, you will write the meaning of each prefix from the previous slide. (You can use a dictionary.)
