Word Roots

These award-winning books teach the meaning and spelling of roots, prefixes, and suffixes that are the elements used to form words in English. Learning these word elements dramatically improves spelling and the ability to decode unfamiliar words.

The activities focus on using these words in context to help students incorporate each word into their vocabulary and retain the correct spelling. There are periodic reviews to make sure students retain what is taught in the lessons. Word Roots 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

Flashcards & Flashcards Apps
The Word Roots Flashcards can be used to supplement or enrich our Word Roots books/software products or as an independent teaching tool. 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. Each level includes all of the prefixes, roots, suffixes, and vocabulary words contained in the corresponding book or software as well as their meanings. The apps give students the opportunity to hear how each word part and vocabulary word is pronounced. 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.

The Word Roots Flashcards™ Apps 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™ Apps can be played independently and provide students the correct spelling and pronunciation of all word parts and vocabulary taught in the software.
