The Critical Thinking Company Word Roots, Book B1

Word Roots teaches students the meanings of Latin and Greek prefixes, roots, and suffixes commonly used in English. Students who learn to use these word elements will dramatically improve their spelling and their ability to decode unfamiliar words, adding hundreds of words to their usable vocabulary. This richer vocabulary, in turn, gives greater depth to students' thinking and writing.

For each lesson students:

  • learn the meanings of prefixes, roots, and suffixes
  • divide or assemble known and unknown compound words based on their elements
  • match word parts or whole words to their definitions by analyzing their meanings
  • apply their new vocabulary in sentences
Includes a Pretest/Post-test, answers, and a dictionary of words derived from Latin/Greek roots. Grades 7-12.

I bought this book for my 13 & 16 year olds. I was so excited to receive and start this book. But after starting the book I felt the teaching was way to vague. For example the word "synoptic" syn= with, together opt= eye, vision ic= like, related to. Out of this information the student was supposed to gather the matching answer of "taking a general view of the whole subject". Just not the book for us. I felt it needed a little more info in order for the student to work the text successfully.

Instructions are clear and the efficient lay-out lets my middle schooled child work without any addtional help from me. Wonderful supplement and enhancement to vocabulary and spelling. Appreciate the pre & post tests, pronunciation and answer key all in the same book. They also give permission to reproduce the students pages for us within your household or classroom.
