Students will receive this Prefix word list today. This paper is very important because it contains 4 word lists, beginning this week through March 2. This week we are focusing on words with the re- prefix. Students need to know the meaning of the re- prefix (to do again) and how it changes the root word. Students should also be able to spell the words correctly. Please review these words with your student this week in preparation for the assessment on Friday. We will follow the schedule at the bottom of the page for the next list.
