Product Description:

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.

Grades 4 - 8

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.

The activities in this book are effective in covering the words. My kids enjoy these worksheets and how we explore the meaning of the roots and learn words. I like the touch of added commonly-used Latin phrases; it helps kids understand things they hear adults say.

The problem is that at least half of the printing on each page is done in grey, not black. It's too light to show up when copied. I have to trace over the writing, the crossword boxes, etc., with a black pen to make the copies readable.
