This is a fabulous product! My students love the activities and are engaged in meaningful discussion about the shades of meaning between the words. They have begun to use the vocabulary in their own writing as well!

Complementary to current word work approach in class, with focus on word derivations and families. Excellent resource for the bulk of my class.
