Maggie’s Vocabulary

Months went by and Maggie had learned many Latin and Greek prefixes, roots, and suffixes and how they worked together to make word families. She became intrigued with exploring the possibilities of combining prefixes, roots, and suffixes. She would spend a good portion of her time at tutoring with a root and building lists of vocabulary that can be built from the prefixes, and suffixes she knew and that were compatible with the root. Maggie did this for some time, and started noticing these patterns in words she was seeing at school.
