PREFIXES

A prefix is added to the beginning of a word to make a new word.

For example, if you add the prefix “dis” to the beginning of the word “respectful”, you have made the word disrespectful, which now has a completely different meaning.

ADVERBS

What is an adverb?

Well we know that verbs are action words, such sing, read and jump. Adverbs are words that describe these verbs. They explain when, how, where and how often. For example, I want to sing happily. The word happily is an adverb, because it describes the verb (which is sing).

MAKING INFERENCES

When we read a story, we make inferences.

What is an inference? It is when you figure out something that is not directly said in the story. You use what you already know, as well as the clues from the story to make an inference.

It’s a bit like being a reading detective. Here are some examples of how you can make inferences:

ANTONYMS

We already know that synonyms are words that have the same or nearly the same meaning as another word. Now we are learning about antonyms. An antonym is a word that has the opposite meaning of another word.

For example, ‘hot’ is an antonym for ‘cold’, ‘small’ is an antonym for ‘big’ and ‘up’ is an antonym for ‘down’.

CONTRACTIONS

In Literacy, 1C has been learning all about contractions.

Contractions are ‘shortcut words’. They are created when two words are combined to make one smaller word. The letters that are left out, are replaced by an apostrophe.

For example, ‘I will’ becomes ‘I’ll’, ‘do not’ becomes ‘don’t’, ‘can not’ becomes ‘can’t’.
