Product Description:

Increase your children's vocabulary without workbooks or study - learn while playing Rummy Roots! This unique card game will allow students to master 42 different Greek and Latin roots. After learning these familiar roots and practicing alphabetizing via a simple "Go Fish"-type game, players progress to 3 higher levels of play. In Level 1, players combine roots to form English words and practice dictionary skills. In level 2, dictionary skills are improved as players try to stump their opponents. Level 3 is played like Rummy using three root combinations to further expand vocabulary and comprehension. The result of all this fun? Mastering 42 Greek and Latin roots, over 190 vocabulary words learned, and the ability to at least partially decipher over 2,000 words!

Yvonne d on Jul 21, 2016
I played this when I was homeschooled myself and thanks to that I still look for roots in my daily life, also it is so much fun to beat your teacher. I thought my son would love it.

This is part of the Trail Guide to Learning series that we are using this year.
Julie H on Jun 21, 2016
I wanted to try something other than workbooks this year. I'm hoping this will be a fun way for both of my children to learn their word roots together.
Deborah S on May 7, 2016
Looks like fun.
Alison B on Mar 31, 2016
This is recommended by Mr. Pudewa from IEW, and because his program works and the children love it, I am confident that this will be a welcome addition to our game nights.

A fun way to learn something that could otherwise be difficult.
So far we are still in learning mode, but the kids and I are enjoying the process of learning the different roots and what they mean. We have been playing the beginner’s version (basically Go Fish). The kids are still enjoying it after multiple plays a week for the last month or so!

Repeat purchase for all my students with dyslexia!
This is a very useful game. I use at a linguistics teacher to children with dyslexia. I play my own memory version of the game with my students during instruction but I suggest to the families that they play Rummy Roots.
Learning morphemes is a great tool for expanding vocabulary, spelling and decoding.

Great product and nice discount, though it took a while to get here.
We really like our new card game. It is in perfect condition even though it was discounted for having been opened. It took a long time to come, but I think that was because part of our order was out off stock. It came pretty soon after I cancelled the other item.

This game has been a fun and painless way to learn root words My son and I have nearly memorized all the root words and their definitions and will soon be ordering Rummy Roots 2 It's super easy to use and no prep work needed You can't beat the value and it doesn't feel like "doing school" at all We love this game and use it nearly every day in our homeschool

The Rummy Roots game is excellent The rules are easy to understand and only took a few moments to read After that my ten year old daughter and I played She loved it! (She beat me two out of three times!) It was so easy and I could see her learning Painless repetition of Greek and Latin roots and their meanings! The cards are divided into three groups so as not to be overwhelming After mastering one group move on to the next After all three groups are mastered there are three more games to play to help kids (and adults) increase vocabulary and form new words This was well worth it!
