e Skills Minimod Prefixes, Suffixes, and Root Words has been developed to help students practice and master the important language skill of recognizing and understanding multi-syllabic words that are made up of base words, prefixes, and/or suffixes. It has been carefully aligned with the new Core Curriculum Standards. Students can play in either practice mode or game mode. The game mode is a bingo-like game. Students will read a short sentence, then practice their understanding of Prefixes, Suffixes, and Root Words. Each program offers 4 levels with carefully controlled vocabulary.

Waste of money
Really bad. Users identify the meanings of affixes in isolation. No opportunities to build new words and practice using the affixes in a meaningful way. The "create a new word" activity is garbage. Users are given a stem and a choice of 3 affixes with no reference to meaning and no linguistic context whatsoever.
Whoever designed this didn't seem to be interested in language skill retention and generalization. SLPs, pass on this one. It's meaningless drill.
