Hi everybody. I'm hoping you can help me find some resources. I am looking for a comprehensive and exhaustive list of prefixes, roots, and suffixes with examples to use in my fourth grade class. Also, I'd like to know if there is such a thing as an organized list geared for teaching, or for lessons of this nature. If you know of the existence of either of these, could you please post them here? Thank you.

A list like that does sound exhausting. Oh you said exhaustive.
I don't have one but welcome and good luck.

I'm sure there are some good people who could help you, but maybe they are in a state of collective indisposition.
Keep knocking.

and this one is good, too: more lists.

by the way, I just googled "list of prefixes"...

and I wanted to let you know that your signature link doesn't work.

Thanks! I think I'm going to have to take all these resources and compile my own list. Any ideas about how to focus an etymology curriculum (for Fourth Grade)? I'm just beginning to implement/design a program. Focus is a major issue.

I looked at that book for the longest time and thought, "How could a book about rabbits be any good?" I did the same thing with Saki, and now I'm really liking the complete works.

I endured much peer pressure when I first read it in the 8th grade, but it was worth it.
