PART ONE

Spelling rule: prefix hyphens

A hyphen can be used to join a prefix to a root word. This is particularly the case if the prefix ends in a vowel letter and the root word also begins with a vowel. e.g. re-enter, co-ordinate.

Challenge 1: Find at least five words that use this rule.

Challenge 2: Do an activity from your spelling homework activities sheet to share with your teacher.
