Teach your child about prefixes, suffixes and root words with this fun, visual activity. Get your child to draw and colour in a tree. Print out some root words (for example: help, enjoy etc) and place these over the roots of the tree. Print out some prefixes and suffixes (for example: un, ful etc) and place these over the leaves of the tree. Ask your child how many different words they can make with these. Could they make a word that has BOTH a prefix and a suffix?  For more information and ideas about prefixes and suffixes, to to: http://www.bbc.co.uk/skillswise/topic/prefixes-and-suffixes
