New Version!

How did we improve our award-winning series? We created more effective activities to help students learn the meaning and spelling of roots, prefixes, and suffixes commonly used in English. Learning these word elements dramatically improves spelling and the ability to decode unfamiliar words. Next we added more than 100 new vocabulary words along with activities that focus on using these words in context to help students incorporate each word into their vocabulary and retain the correct spelling. Finally, we added lesson reviews to make sure students retain what is taught in the lessons. Our new and improved Word Roots books 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 following the lessons include:

A. Spelling and Defining Words - Match each given word to its correct definition.

B. Completing the Sentence - Complete the sentence by choosing the correct word.

C. Defining the Word Parts - Define the word parts.

D. Writing Sentences - Write sentences using the words in the lesson.

E. (optional) Creative Writing

Teaching Support

The books include a pretest/posttest, lesson reviews, answers, and a dictionary of the prefixes, roots, suffixes, and vocabulary words derived from Latin and/or Greek word elements.

Category Description for Word Roots:

When one starts studying vocabulary they realize how words relate to one another and how learning a prefix or suffix can help them decode the meaning of a totally new word. Word Roots is based on this premise: to efficiently and effectively learn vocabulary (and aid spelling as well as reading comprehension) learn the different elements - roots, prefixes, suffixes. Word Roots covers both Greek and Latin roots; these being the foundation of much of our English language.

Each Word Roots lesson covers one or more root words plus several prefixes and suffixes; giving definitions of each. The student then works through a list of derivatives (words derived from the root word) matching definitions with the words. Then the new words are used in sentences; the student deciding what is the best word choice for each sentence. Previous editions of this program stopped at this point but the newest edition provides a number of extra reinforcement exercises: defining word parts, writing sentences and an optional creative writing suggestion. Reviews after every two lessons provide several different activities that match words from both lessons to their definitions as well as a sentence completion activity. A pre-test and a post-test help to evaluate how much the student knows going into the course and how much progress they made as they finish. Each book also includes a complete answer key plus a dictionary of Latin roots, prefixes, and suffixes. The workbooks are reproducible for one classroom or homeschool.

Flashcards (3.25" x 5.25") have a prefix, root, or suffix on the front and definitions on the back. The set includes instructions for quick, fun activities. A helpful supplement to the Word Roots workbooks or other roots-based programs or they can also be used as an independent teaching tool. Card sets correspond to the word list for each level.

Compared to the previous edition, the roots, prefixes, and suffixes are largely the same in corresponding books; A1 to Book 1, A2 to Book 2. However, there are more derivatives (vocabulary words) and activities for each list in the new edition. There is no indication that Critical Thinking Co. will be updating the software, but the impression I got is that the increased activities in the books now correlates better with the software, which used to have more activities than the book. 225 - 250 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

Great way to figure out new words encountered
Jacquelene P on Jul 24, 2018
It's a straight forward workbook that my son won't want to throw across the room in frustration. Every lesson gives him multiple ways to put into practice what he has learned. There are reviews which cover two lessons at a time which I like and feel he needs.

Easy way to learn vocabulary and spelling . . . Might help years later while taking SAT.

My kids love MindBenders, Building Thinking Skills and other Critical Thinking workbooks so I thought we would try Word Roots. I value how it teaches the parts of words and they can be word detectives, figuring out the meaning of new words they encounter using suffixes, prefixes and roots as clues.

I would like to use Word Roots with my 9th grader. Should I start with Level 1 or jump to a higher level?
A shopper on Aug 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: If you have never worked with word roots there is no harm in starting with level 1 the other levels are more challenging. I would think that a ninth grader will be able to handle level 1 well. If your child loves language and words then go the level 2.
