From The Developer:
I was a 2nd and 3rd grade elementary teacher for 33 years. I'm now a teaching librarian. It was always a struggle to find a good prefix resource, so I helped develop this comprehensive unit. Since this is an important subject to cover in early elementary years, we hope you find it useful.
