Prefix Lists

Your third grader's first prefix list will be sent home on Monday. Please look for a 10-word list of words to study. We'll take the test on Friday. A reminder that students do not need to know how to spell the words, just understand their meaning. We will practice the words and definitions throughout the week at school as well.
