Word Study
Day 1
Hocus Pocus! This week’s focus
is…
Prefixes un-, re-, mis-, disUnknown- not known
Mistake-the wrong answer
Recall-to call again
Disagree- not agree
Spelling - Prefixes
Objective:
Spell words with prefixes un-, re-, mis-, dis-.
When the prefixes un-, re-, mis-, or disare added to words, no change is made to
the base word: unhappy, recall, mistake,
dislike.
Adding certain prefixes to base words
does not usually change the
pronunciation of the base word.
Great Job!
