Word Roots teaches students the meanings of Latin and Greek prefixes, roots, and suffixes commonly used in English. Learning word elements dramatically improves spelling and the ability to decode unfamiliar words. Word Roots will add hundreds of words to your students’ vocabulary and greater depth to their thinking and writing.
How did we improve our award-winning series? We created more effective activities to help students learn the meaning and spelling of roots, prefixes, and suffixes commonly used in English. Learning these word elements dramatically improves spelling and the ability to decode unfamiliar words. Next we added more than 100 new vocabulary words along with activities that focus on using these words in context to help students incorporate each word into their vocabulary and retain the correct spelling.
Each lesson has the meanings of prefixes, roots, and suffixes used to form the vocabulary words. The activities following the lessons include:
The books include a pretest/posttest, lesson reviews, answers, and a dictionary of the prefixes, roots, suffixes, and vocabulary words derived from Latin and/or Greek word elements.
