Used this for a middle schooler to help her have better understandings of words and to better her spelling.
I love this book because it’s easy to use. It’s straightforward and it’s an important skill. This will help my son with his sat’s!
This looks like a great workbook. I like the focus on decoding roots, pre- and suffixes.
I have used Word roots with my high school and this is the first time I am using it with my 7th grader. He struggles with doing simple spelling word lists, he says they are boring. but this book has already got him engaged.
I love this! You can see the breakdown of all the words and how you would use them. I like the repetition as well through the lessons and review
