Decoding Bigger Words

When children learn to read, they generally start with shorter words with fewer syllables. As they read more, they will encounter longer words that may lead to frustration. Help them recognize prefixes (e.g., “re-” and “dis-”) and suffixes (e.g., “-ing” and “-ed”). Keep a word list of new words and go over them often with your children.
