    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!

    In the same format as Rummy Roots, the goal of More Roots is to extend your mastery of Greek and Latin roots. Use of Rummy Roots is not a prerequisite to using More Roots. As compared to the "flagship" game, More Roots has more Latin than Greek roots, concentrates more on prefixes, and focuses on common "everyday" words as opposed to the original's emphasis on scientific words.

    Just as words are broken up phonetically in order to pronounce them, they can be broken into pieces to reveal the meaning of the word. Knowing word roots is an important part of literacy. Each lesson holds four pages which teach a set of roots. The first page is a word list for the student to read and study the words and their definitions. The second page holds a vocabulary sort which involves matching all of the words with their definitions. The next page is a group activity, read-around review, but it can be performed by one student as well. In this activity each word is on a card, along with a clue as to which word comes next. After the clue is read, the person holding the word card that is the answer reads their clue, and so on until all of the words have been identified. The last page of each lesson contains a vocabulary quiz. After every two lessons a review test ensures the roots are remembered. 144 pages. ~ Steph

    So, you could pick up a deck of cards or start through an endless series of workbooks in your quest to become educated about Greek and Latin roots. Alternatively, you could thoroughly enjoy an entertaining DVD backed by online access to flashcards, quizzes and games that test your abilities to retain, recognize, match, listen, spell, and type word roots! Dwane Thomas (Visual Latin) hosts this engaging DVD series, each of which includes 10 lessons (15-18 minutes in length) that explore a total of 20 Latin and Greek roots. 10 or so English words derived from each root means over 200 English words are explained. Honestly, this doesn't even feel like learning! The lessons are to the point – and fun to watch. And the additional activities and games online can quickly become competitive – child vs. child or child vs. parent (don't be too sure of yourself mom or dad: you may think you're out of the age bracket for this course, but I guarantee a challenge!) The online component is very easy to use (I was able to start working on the lesson 1 quiz and games within seconds of going to the website). You can even create an account (or multiple accounts) and then your game scores are ranked against other Wordup! users. Simple, effective and a great value. – Zach

    A creative, interactive, hands-on approach to vocabulary! What better way to retain the learning of new words? Using index cards, a file box, and a good dictionary, this approach is a welcome departure from the typical workbook fare. And, subtitled: Help for Reading, Writing, Spelling and S.A.T. Scores, it's obvious from looking at this book that it would, indeed, do just that! How? By teaching the roots of the English language found in Greek and Latin. Since the majority of our words are rooted in these classical languages, mastering these roots is a key that will open the door to understanding a myriad of words! The creative activity suggestions in this book could become the basis for wonderful unit studies as well.

    For everyone out there who loves English from the Roots Up, here is another dose! This book introduces 100 new root words - 67 Latin and 33 Greek - with English derivatives for you to teach to your students. Because these words are a little more advanced than those in the first volume, the authors encourage you to complete the first volume before beginning this one. Having used the first volume provides students with a firm foundation for beginning this more advanced study, although if you want to you can begin here. This sequel is extremely similar in appearance to its predecessor. - Melissa
