Prefixes, Suffixes & Roots

In order to help my students decode difficult words, we are learning 45 common prefixes, suffixes and roots.  Of course, there are still many more that we should know, but these will be the ones we will be testing on in the months of February and March.  Below you will find a list of the words they will be responsible for learning.  I have also attached the study sheet they have been given and a second printout that can be used at flashcards.  (If they lose their study sheet, you will be able to print off a replacement!)
