Transcript of Suffixes & Prefixes (CI350)

5th Grade Language Arts/English Suffixes & Prefixes Before adding a suffix or prefix, what do you need to have? What is a Prefix? A PREFIX is word part that is added to the beginning of a base (root) word to change its meaning. What is a Suffix? A SUFFIX is a word part that is added to the end of a base word to change its meaning. From the ASSURE Unit Plan: Day #1
Using Greek Mythology to Creatively Teach.... Reading, Writing, Listening, Speaking, and Media Literacy.
By: Keisha Jeffrey Today's Lesson: Answer: Base (Root) Word A ROOT WORD is the main part of a word that contains its core meaning. Sometimes it is a word on its own, as in unbelievable ('believe' is the root word), and sometimes it cannot stand alone, as in relocation ('loc' is the root word).

Either way, prefixes and suffixes can be added to root words, which might change either the meaning of the word (such as deactivate, reactivate) or its grammatical function (transports= present tense, transported= past tense, transportation= noun).

Also, sometimes spelling changes when suffixes are added to root words (noise, noisy). Common Prefixes: =NOT or the opposite of the rest of the word
EX: (uneaten=not eaten)
=Also means NOT
EX: (disagreed means not agreed)
EX: (redone means done again)
EX: (predate means to come before) Common Suffixes: More than one (plural): EX: book, books

Shows when something happened- in the present (ing) or
past (ed) tense EX: working, worked

More or the most of something: EX: colder, coldest

Shows there is a lot of something or none of something
EX: hopeful, hopeless Examples:
Painting, Helpful, Played
un- dis- re- pre- Examples:
Repaint, Disagreed, Undone -s, -es -ing, -ed -er, -est -ful, -less A key aspect of learning the meaning of unknown words is breaking or splitting the word into parts. Word:

Unpainted Prefix:

un- Root/Base Word:

paint Suffix:

-ed The below diagram is an example of how to break down words, eventually unknown Greek Words. -ed
Shows when something happened in the past tense; something that has already happened. -un
Means not (no) or the opposite of the rest of the world. Group Discussion Directions: On a sheet of paper, write down the words containing a suffix or prefix. You don't have to be a botanist to grow your own food! The warmest time of year is best for planting, or replanting, some seeds, while others can only grow when planted during colder times. Some plants, like tomatoes, become droopy if you don't water them daily. You must make sure the soil has just the right amount of wetness for each type of plant. Gardening can be difficult, but the right knowledge can make it easier. Before starting today's assignment,
let's watch an education video about
Prefixes and Suffixes!
