"I will be able to use prefixes to decode the meaning of words"
What are some common prefixes that you know?
Prefix: A prefix is a group of letters placed before a root word. Prefixes change the meaning of the word they are attached to. For example, the prefix 'un' means 'not', so if you add it to the word 'happy' you create the word 'unhappy'. Root Word: A root word is the main part of a word. It is the part that contains the main meaning of the word. For example, the root word for unhappy is 'happy'.
