Word Building

LI: To build words from a base word using prefixes and suffixes

This week we have been learning how words are build from a base word using suffixes and prefixes. A base word is a complete word by itself that changes when you add a prefix or suffix. Our challenge is to see how many words we could make from one base word. In this DLO the word we used was ‘excite’.

We found this activity interesting because I learned how to build the base words by using suffixes and prefixes in a helpful way. For an example: if you add prefix un which means not with the base word excite which means it shows more happiness, that will create the word unexcite.
