Product Reviews Write a review for this product
- "My 12 year old daughter loves to begin her homeschool day doing pages from Word Roots. She can complete them independently and we check them together, learning new words each day. She is expanding her vocabulary quickly and recognizing how to discern the meaning of unfamiliar words by using what she knows about roots. I would recommend this series for budding writers wishing to build their vocabulary!" - Allison, MD
