Word Roots Series

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.

For each lesson students first learn the meanings of prefixes, roots, and suffixes. Then they:
- divide known and unknown words into their elements or assemble elements to form whole words.
- match word parts or whole words to their definitions by analyzing their meanings.
- apply their new vocabulary in sentences.

New Version!
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. Finally, we added lesson reviews to make sure students retain what is taught in the lessons. Our new and improved Word Roots books will add hundreds of words to your students' vocabulary and greater depth to their thinking and writing.

Each lesson has the meanings of prefixes, roots, and suffixes used to form the vocabulary words. The activities following the lessons include:
      A. Spelling and Defining Words
          Match each given word to its correct definition.
     B. Completing the Sentence
          Complete the sentence by choosing the correct word.
     C. Defining the Word Parts
          Define the word parts.
     D. Writing Sentences
          Write sentences using the words in the lesson.
     E. (optional) Creative Writing

Flashcards & Flashcards Software
The Word Roots Flashcards can be used to supplement and enrich our Word Roots books/software products or as an independent teaching tool. Each set of flashcards includes all of the prefixes, roots, suffixes, and vocabulary words contained in the corresponding book or software as well as a dictionary of meanings. The flashcards include instructions for various quick, fun activities to help students learn the meanings and spellings of the word parts and the vocabulary produced from the word parts. Students who learn the meanings of word parts can decode the meaning and spelling of new vocabulary by breaking a word into its word parts.

The Word Roots Flashcards™ software games are organized into what the author considers the optimal learning order, but can be played in any order. Games 1-6 are Study Games to learn the word parts and their definitions. Games 7-10 are Practice Games using the word parts to form words to show that students know the definitions of the word parts.

All of our Word Roots Flashcard™ software can be played independently and provide students the correct spelling and pronunciation of all word parts and vocabulary taught in the software.
