Feedback from a customer:
“The Root cards are amazing! I brought them on a family car trip last March to test them out with my children (ages 6 and 10) before using them with my students. My hope was that I would simply introduce my 10 year old daughter to the Latin and Greek influence in English words. I was instantly surprised that both of my children enjoyed the cards tremendously. They quickly asked me to increase the difficulty of our games by adding additional cards. We were using the entire deck before our trip ended and are now eagerly awaiting the creation of more cards. My students have been equally effected. The best result, however, is the effect they have had on my teaching over all. Greek and Latin roots are in 60% of our words. Spotting them, regardless of the focus of our lesson, has become a source of delight for my students and me.”
