Word Roots Level 2 for iOS

Developer's Description

---- Learning the Building Blocks of Better Spelling and Vocabulary ----

Empowers students to acquire an unlimited vocabulary, preparing them for testing and higher education!

Students learn the meaning and spelling of Latin and Greek roots, prefixes, and suffixes that are the elements used to form words in English. Learning these word elements dramatically improves spelling and the ability to decode unfamiliar words.

Each lesson has the meanings of prefixes, roots, and suffixes used to form the vocabulary words. The activities in each lesson include:

A. Touch the Word That Matches the Definition
