Class Experience

US Grade 5 - 8
Intermediate Level
In this middle school vocabulary class, students will master Latin and Greek roots, prefixes, and suffixes to expand their working vocabulary, improve reading comprehension, and enhance writing skills.
I have taught in my homeschool for 16+ years and taught ESL for 5+ years online -- spelling is just a challenge! English is hard sometimes! It is such a mish-mash of other languages that it creates some crazy ways to spell words. Learning roots and common prefixes and suffixes helps build vocabulary which can then be applied to writing and reading comprehension. Practice and reinforcement are the best tools for learning these and friends make the learning fun! 

In addition to teaching my own kids, I have a journalism degree from PSU and am IMSE Orton-Gillingham trained in phonics and reading instruction.
Practice! Practice! Practice!
