San Bernardino Valley College Professor of Reading
Welcome, Reading 970 Students!

     This Quia home page will help you to learn throughout the semester.  From time to time, I will post games and activities on this page which will help you to practice new words and new skills.  Many of the activities will be in the form of games or practice quizzes to help you prepare for the real quizzes and tests on which you will be graded. You can complete these Quia activities as many times as you wish to make sure that you learn the material thoroughly.
     If you have your own home computer and a connection to the Internet, you can access this Quia page at home.  The address for this class is(please copy this down accurately)  It is essential that you enter this address correctly, key for key and space for space.  Once you have accessed the site, be sure to bookmark it so that you will not have to type in the address a second time.
     The first thing you can do is to play some games to help you learn the meanings of some prefixes and roots. A prefix is a word part which is found at the beginning of the English word. A root is a word part which carries the word's main meaning element; it is usually, but not always, found in the middle of a word. Most of our prefixes and roots come from Latin and Greek, and learning the meanings of prefixes and roots helps you to understand why English words mean what they mean.
Try the Prefix games first. Choose Flashcards to practice the meanings of the prefixes. Then select the Matching game to test yourself. Try the Concentration game last because it is the most challenging. You can play all the games over and over, and they will never be exactly the same.

     Have fun while you learn!  Mrs. Purkart
