Just Words is a highly explicit, sophisticated study of word structure designed to
further develop a student’s fluency and reading comprehension.
There are several components to the Just Words program and together all of these components will help build
skills to become a successful reader, and create a desire to engage in the joy of reading.
● Six types of syllables in English will be learned to build phonetic skills and provide practice in essential areas
such as decoding words, reading comprehension, fluency, vocabulary, phonics, and spelling.
● Studying the common Latin prefixes, suffixes, and roots will increase students' existing vocabulary and
decoding skills, and improve reading and comprehension.
Students progress will be monitored in comprehension, vocabulary, fluency, phonics, and spelling.
