Worksheet Overview

A prefix is a letter or group of letters added to the beginning of a word. Knowing what a prefix means can help us to understand new words.


If we add the prefix un- to a word, it usually gives it the opposite meaning.

happy / unhappy


If we add the prefix re- to a word, it usually means that the action is being done again.

paint / repaint


If we add the prefix mis- to a word, it usually means that something is being done wrongly.

behave / misbehave


In this worksheet you can practise adding prefixes to words to make new words.
