This twenty-four slide PowerPoint presentation, introduces the roots -vid-, -vis-, -viv-, -vit-, -scribe-, -spec-, -aud-, -vert-, -verse-, -dem-, -corp-, and -astro-. It includes definitions, examples, and student activities. Students improve their vocabulary, reading, and writing skills by sorting, matching, and completing bubble maps with these roots.
Also see my other PowerPoint presentations on prefixes, suffixes, and roots.
From Classroom in the Middle
I have been teaching for about twenty-five years. For most of that time I taught English and a variety of other subjects in inclusion and self-contained classrooms. I have also taught in alternative school settings.
