Class Description:
Students will enjoy working with words as they learn new vocabulary using English from the Roots Up, which teaches the way English words are created from component root words originating in Greek and Latin roots. Students will be challenged to actively build their vocabulary throughout everyday life. We’ll also play fun word games to practice what they’re learning. While this is a not a writing class, there will be times where students will put their word knowledge to use in fun ways such as writing a restaurant review or a movie review.

Whether your student already loves working with words or not, this class will engage every student as they become wordsmiths!
