Me First! Prefixes Lead the Way
This is a very imaginative story about a teacher who uses an unusual technique to teach his students about prefixes. Prefixes are small groups of letters that come at the beginning of words. In this story, the teacher, Mr. Wright (that’s my teacher’s name, too!), dresses up like President Abraham Lincoln to teach his students about leadership. (I did a book review about Abe Lincoln!) In this story, the prefixes become individual characters, and they learn about leadership as well. My favorite character is the prefix En. One thing I didn’t like about this book was that the author made the prefixes have capital letters, even though I know that this makes it easier to see them. One thing I DID like was that the characters speak in different fonts, which is kind of cool. I think boys and girls who love grammar would really like this book. I also think that teachers who are teaching grammar to young students might enjoy using this book in their classrooms. Overall, I think this book is a great one!
