5 Create a word web

            A word  web  is a picture that helps you connect words together and helps you increase your vocabulary.
            Here is a word web for the word frightened:

                          a frightened child

                 easily frightened
                                                                                                   fright (n)

            6 Memorize common prefixes, roots, and suffixes

            Many English words can be  i vided  i n to  i fferent parts. We call these parts prefixes, roots, and suffixes.
            A prefix comes at the be i n n i n g of a word, a suffix comes at the end of a wor ,   and the root is the main part
            of the word.  In your vocabulary notebook, make a list of prefixes and suffixes as you come across them. On
            page 238 there is a list of prefixes and suffixes  n   this book. For example, look at the word unhappily.
                   prefix: un- (meaning not)                       suffix: -ly (meaning an adverb)
                                  ----- unhappily----

                                                  root: happy

            7 Regularly review your vocabulary notebook

            You should review the words  n   yo r   vocab l ary notebook very often. The more often you  review your list of
            new words, the sooner you  will be able to recognize the words when you  see them during reading. Set up a
            schedule to go over the words you  are learni n g .
            8 Make vocabulary flash cards

            Flash cards are easy to make, and you  can  carry them everywhere with you. You  can  use them to study
            while you are waiting for the bus, walking to school or work, or eating a meal. You can use the flash cards
            with your friends to  u i z each other.  Here is an example of a flash card:
                                                                potong �

                          cut                                 �  xple5enunce

                                                          He is cutting an apple.
