Dictionary and Definition Hints For B Words

Teaching prefixes will help your kids learn way many more words over the course of time. Just knowing the prefix "bi-" is helpful during life since future science classes and real life use the prefix bi- in the same way:

  • Biannual means that an event happens every two years. 
  • Binary uses two digits. 
  • To bisect means to cut in half, making two parts. 

The same is true of other prefixes and endings and it is true throughout all our English vocabulary.
