Best Practices Webinar

  I love how Building Vocabulary gives engaging practice using affixes and Greek and Latin roots. Morphological analysis is the only vocabulary strategy that the students can transfer independently yet it is difficult to find materials that are colorful, engaging, and rich instructionally. We are using Building Vocabulary for small groups to sharpen students' ability to use morphological analysis to construct meaning of unknown words, which we know will build their reading comprehension. This is especially great for grades 3-5! Thank you for the creative, variety of activities to engage all students! Love it!  

  … I attribute our success with the new standards (which mirror the Common Core) to our preparation with Greek and Latin word parts! Each grade level on the State test had questions regarding word parts (roots and affixes). Every school in our district met the reading Annual Measurable Objectives (VERY hard to do).
