Reading Tips: this week- Prefixes

Reading Tips

Word Parts - Prefixes


Good readers can decode 3-5 syllable words. Many of these words have prefixes. A prefix is added at the beginning of a word(root word).


Common suffixes are:

  • Anti-

  • Mid-

  • Un-

  • Re-

  • mis-


Good readers should be able to read these prefixes and be able to know:

  • Anti- means to be against. (antibacterial, antibiotic)

  • Mid- means to be in the middle. (midway, mid-air)

  • Un- means not (Unable, unaware, uncommon)

  • Re- means to do again or go back. (redo, react, reuse)

  • Mis- means to do something wrong. (misjudge, mistake, misery)


Using prefixes meanings when reading 3-5 syllables builds on your student’s ability to comprehend stories and find meaning in unknown words.


Some books that can be used to find prefixes and suffixes are:
