Ready-to-Go Learning Packets That Teach 40 Key Roots and Help Students Unlock the Meaning of Dozens and Dozens of Must-Know Vocabulary Words
By Liane B. Onish
Eight ready-to-go activity packets sharpen students’ word-study skills and boost their vocabularies. In each packet, students learn five common Greek and Latin roots and 15 new words formed from these roots. Crossword puzzles, word searches, and other fun activities provide repeated practice to make new vocabulary stick. Also includes mini-picture cards! Perfect for independent work or for homework.
Post the roots of the week on chart paper. Have students list cognates they find in their content-area and independent reading on the chart. Students can add these words to their word cards. Encourage students to use these words to make their own word searches and crossword puzzles for their classmates to solve.
