Understanding new words is often very challenging for students with language disorders. Teaching students to recognize and apply the meaning of prefixes to these new words can really support their reading comprehension and vocabulary skills.
This resource is designed to be used by speech pathologists working with children who have language disorders, though it could also be used by teachers of English Language Arts or reading comprehension. It helps to provide context for the meaning of new prefixes by using sentence-length material to support understanding.
This resource includes the following:
Two pages of visuals for pre-teaching prefix meanings
Sentences containing words with prefixes
Resources for sixteen different prefixes leveled by difficulty
Potential goals to address include:
Identifying words with prefixes
Determining the meaning of new vocabulary in context
Deducing the meaning of a prefix in isolation
Carryover understanding of prefix meaning to new words and contexts
