Root words provide the foundation upon which the meaning of a word forms. A prefix or suffix can often be added to these roots to form a new meaning for the word. Root words are unique from affixes in that they can fully stand on their own and they do not need the help of a word part to make sense and have a distinct meaning. These worksheets will help students better understand the meaning of various roots and their use towards language.
Understanding and focusing time on root words and affixes will definitely heighten your ability to read and comprehend as well communicate with others.
