Word Roots teaches your child 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 children's vocabulary and greater depth to their thinking and writing.
In each lesson, children 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 defi nitions by analyzing their meanings
Apply their new vocabulary in sentences
These 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 children learn the meanings and spellings of the word parts and the vocabulary produced from the word parts. Children who learn the meanings of word parts can decode the meaning and spelling of new vocabulary by breaking a word into its word parts.
