New Word Roots to Study!

We have a quiz soon after we return from Spring Break.  It will be the first grade of the fourth quarter.  (The fourth quarter as eighth graders! Yikes!)

You will need to know the definitions and understand the root, prefix, suffix well enough to apply them to new words. 
Your quiz will also cover
the word roots from last quarter,
