Recognizing and using word prefixes helps with reading comprehension and specificity in writing. ReadWriteThink presents a great lesson plan for middle schoolers that not only reaffirms and increases their understanding of prefixes, but also gives ideas for helping students with common misspelling problems that can be encountered when using prefixes. Includes an overview of the lesson, correlation with standards, the resources necessary for implementation of the plan, and the plan itself. There is also a link to a printout of common root words and affixes.
