A prefix is a word which can go at the beginning of a longer word (e.g. ‘under’ goes at the beginning of ‘understand’).

This Prefix game can be played with 2-4 people. You need a box of Lego® bricks or a packet of uncooked pasta as counters.

1. Cut out the cube shape on the page attached and stick it together with glue or sellotape so that it looks like a dice, with a prefix on each side.
2. Take it in turns to roll the dice. 3. Read the prefix on the uppermost side of the dice. You have

to say a word with that prefix at the beginning of it.

1. If you can, you pick up a piece of Lego®/piece of pasta. Players may NOT repeat a word someone else has said before.
2. If you can’t think of a word, skip a go. 6. Keep going until a player gets six bricks/pieces of pasta.

They are the winner.
