Product Description:

Just as words are broken up phonetically in order to pronounce them, they can be broken into pieces to reveal the meaning of the word. Knowing word roots is an important part of literacy. Each lesson holds four pages which teach a set of roots. The first page is a word list for the student to read and study the words and their definitions. The second page holds a vocabulary sort which involves matching all of the words with their definitions. The next page is a group activity, read-around review, but it can be performed by one student as well. In this activity each word is on a card, along with a clue as to which word comes next. After the clue is read, the person holding the word card that is the answer reads their clue, and so on until all of the words have been identified. The last page of each lesson contains a vocabulary quiz. After every two lessons a review test ensures the roots are remembered. 144 pages. ~ Steph

The last page of each lesson contains a vocabulary quiz. After every two lessons a review test ensures the roots are remembered. Each book follows the same format and is intended for the same grade level; the only difference in the books is that they offer different root words. Both books offer 30 root words and over 300 vocabulary words from those roots. 144 pgs, pb. ~ Steph

I'm currently using flash cards to tutor a Language Arts student and thought the workbook might have more interesting quizzes to help make the study of Latin and Greek words more fun.

Learning the root meanings of words will help you better understand meanings of words that you may not know. It helps when taking tests as well.

I teach 5th grade ELA and plan to use these materials during small group RTI instruction with my tier 2 students.

Last year I gave up on the Latin and looked around at word root programs that would have a similar result I settled on this book and have been very pleased with the result This book has a fun easy-to-use format that my boys liked On the first day we introduce the vocabulary around a certain root There are 10 vocabulary words The book gives two worksheets with each vocabulary list--a matching activity and a read-around review activity My boys really enjoy the read-around activity I usually make up two more worksheets or activities to review the words mostly for my youngest and then they take the test These activities take 5 to 15 minutes out of our day Better yet I hear my boys using their new vocabulary in their everyday conversations And the words have even shown up in their writing assignments! If you're looking for a fun non-time consuming way to learn word roots and build vocabulary this series might work for you The only downside is making up a few extra activities (there are some suggestions in the front of the book) I plan to buy the second book in this series for next year
