These supplementary workbooks are designed to ignite an interest in and fascination about words as students learn to decode unfamiliar words based on roots that they already know. Students learn to apply root words, prefixes, and suffixes to expand vocabulary.
The first section of the workbook offers background information for the teacher. Part 1 of the student section explains how the language works, the role of roots and affixes, parts of speech, and how researching word meaning can be used to analyze words. Part 2 of the student section uses these skills in context as students branch out and apply these skills to the various subject areas. The final student section includes a few word play exercises that can be used to assess student progress. Black-and-white reproducible pages. Answers are included in the back of the workbook.
