Before beginning this worksheet, it is important that you explain to your kids what suffixes and prefixes are. Prefixes are words which are added to the beginning of another word in order to give it a new meaning. Suffixes, on the other hand, are added to the end of a word to change its meaning. Give your kids some popular examples of prefixed words such as ‘unhappy’ and suffixes like ‘forgetful’. Now, read the instructions in this simple worksheet and help your child circle the words where necessary, and check off the boxes where instructed.
Read through the adorable story about Sam and Kate to find all the words with prefixes and suffixes. This cute prefix and suffix worksheet for grade 3 will task your child with keeping a tally of the words they find as they read. Count them all up and check the correct boxes to complete!
