Teaching prefixes is an EVIDENCE BASED strategy to help students who struggle with vocabulary. Did you know that directly teaching word parts- affixes, base words, roots -greatly enhance vocabulary because 60% of English words have Latin or Greek origins (Armbruster & Osborn, 2001). This easy to implement prefix bulletin board will allow you to provide your students with the exposure to prefixes they need without taking time away from other goals.
