In this 5 day course, learners will be given a little over 100 of the most common root words to play games with and learn.

Class experience

US Grade 5 - 8
Each root word can be the root for multiple English words making it possible for a learner to use each of the 100 root words to add 100s to their vocabulary. For Example: The Greek word for water is Hydros. From hydros we get hydrophobic (something that will not mix well with water) Hydraulics, hydroponics, hydrate, the hydrologic cycle, hydrant, etc. 
I have been teaching English in both public school and online school now for nearly 20 years. 
Homework Offered
Each homework assignment is multiple choice and designed to help learners with learning the assigned 25 root words for that day. Each assignment aligns with the 25 root words assigned for that day.
2 - 4 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Usually, the game lets me know how well a learner has studied and completed the homework. It will be difficult to play the game(s) if the learner does not know the words assigned.
Grades Offered
 3 files available upon enrollment
Teacher will supply lists and homework assignments. No additional materials are required. Printing of the homework is optional. Most parents prefer to print it out for their student; however, when the homework is listed in the classroom, there is a preview button that displays the homework on the computer screen. Learners only need write down the number of the question and the answer letter on a regulars piece of paper if they prefer.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
