Prefixes and suffixes allow students to figure out the meanings of words based on these affixes. Students may also discover how to pronounce these words. Prefixes are the beginning affixes that have a certain meaning whereas suffixes are placed at the end of the word. In the quiz, the students will determine the meanings of words based on the affixes. These prefixes and suffixes are used according to those taught in a second grade classroom.
