Vocabulary University

This site offers free vocabulary puzzles that help students understand Latin and Greek root words that promote vocabulary mastery. When you get to the site you will see an introduction and a description of the “Learning Activities” in the center of the page. If you put your cursor over “Learning Activities” on the menu bar you can choose one of three levels of difficulty. Click on the one you want and a new window opens with an explanation of the activities, lessons in root words, and puzzles that help teach the concept of root words in determining the meaning or definition of words. This is a great way to learn more about our language while improving vocabulary for high elementary school students (fourth grade) and up.

You can also access 39 weeks of vocabulary lessons for free — although you must register at the site to use them. You will also find a recommended reading list, SAT and ACT test preparation puzzles, and more.
