Short Texts for Prefixes (mid- and re-)

I'm just popping in to share some things with you! 

I love for my students to be able to read vocabulary words in context and infer the meanings, especially when it comes to prefixes and suffixes. In the past I've had some decodable readers that came with our textbook series, so this year I had to improvise and write my own! I was hesitant to share because these short stories aren't the greatest, but they serve their purpose. 

So far I have only written two- one for the prefix mid- and one for the prefix re-. Feel free to grab them for yourself if you think they would be useful for your students! Just click on the link below each passage. 

If you know of any resources available that would be similar to this that would save me from having to make my own, please let me know! I am no author!! :)

Happy Thursday!


  1. I think your stories are great and I agree students need to see these words in context. Our state tests will often ask students to find the nonexample too. You may want to add one or two of those words in your stories as well. Have you written anymore? Please share if you have ( Your blog has really inspired me today! Thanks. :)

  2. Hi thank you for doing this it was just what I was looking for. I found this website which has PDF links to specific spelling tasks. Hope this is helpful!


Thank you for taking time to comment! I appreciate it!
