---- Learning the Building Blocks of Better Spelling and Vocabulary ----
Empowers students to acquire an unlimited vocabulary, preparing them for testing and higher education!
Students learn the meaning and spelling of Latin and Greek 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 apps 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 in each lesson include:
A. Touch the Word That Matches the Definition
B. Touch the Word That Best Fits in the Sentence
C. Build the Word That Matches the Definition
D. Touch the Word Part That Matches the Definition
