My Reflection
I have been learning to use strategies to add detail to my writing  

Prefixes, Suffixes and root words




My Reflection
 I have been learning to use my knowledge of prefixes and suffixes to read and understand a meaning of words. A prefix is 5 letters or under to put on the beginning of a normal word that changes the meaning.
A suffix is like a prefix but just at the end of the word and it changes the meaning.
I found this easy because all I had to do is i had to find the beginning which is the prefix and the end is the suffix the middle is the root word. My next learning step is to identify the suffix.
