The Beginnings and Endings of Things

Here in Room 10 we have been working on understanding the meanings of different prefixes.
This helps us to understand what we are reading and how to include these words in our story writing.

For example:

Re ( means to do again)

Re + read = reread  ( read that sentence again)

We found the prefix and the base word, then discussed how adding a prefix changes the meaning of the base word.

Lately we have also been looking at suffixes too.

For example:

ful ( full of)

cheer + ful = colour full ( full of good cheer)

Here is an activity we did to make the words. We needed to read out work back to check it made sense, then out some of these words into an oral sentence with a partner.
