    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.

    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!

    As you might have already guessed from the evocative title, this is a vocabulary book centered on Greek and Latin root words. There are 36 units that can be used one per week or in concentration. It's a fun, interactive type of book and a good precursor to the more studious Vocabulary from Classical Roots series. Master word lists, along with their roots, are provided up front as a handy reference and summary. It includes several ideas for activities for each study. Every unit contains three reproducible pages for the student, introducing ten vocabulary words and tracing their definitions back to a common meaning. The pages are graphically stimulating and motivating to complete, rather than a dry, fill-in-the-blank presentation. I especially like the little symbol on the upper right-hand corner of each student page which gives a visual reminder of the root from which all these words spring. As an example, the first root studied is the Latin "foli," meaning "leaf." After students match the definitions to words printed on an assortment of leaf shapes, they make up sentences for each and, optionally, with string, tape, and a twig, make a foli mobile. The second student page for this unit is entitled "Comic Re-Leaf." It has a circle of cartoon visuals depicting the meaning of each vocabulary word with little pictures, characters, and word bubbles. In the center are the ten vocabulary words to write on each. For reinforcement, students then turn their paper over and write the definitions for the ten words from memory. The last page "Turn Over a New Leaf" presents news headlines incorporating the vocabulary words. Students have to write the first sentence of each news story, defining the vocabulary words. For example, the first sentence of a story for the headline "Unicorn Uncovers Unusual Unifoliate Under Uncle's Umbrella" might read, "Yesterday, a young unicorn playing in the park moved the umbrella of a family member only to find a rare species of plant having only one leaf." After this, the student is told to choose one of the headlines and illustrate it. This approach to learning vocabulary has something to offer for all learning styles, including the hands-on learner.
