Word Roots Beginning

Empowers students to acquire an unlimited vocabulary, preparing them for testing and higher education!


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.

Each book includes a Pretest/Posttest, answers, and a dictionary of words derived from Latin roots.
