Use these 32 multiple choice task cards to practice word root meanings. A student answer sheet for students to record their answers is included along with an answer key for self-checking. There is also a Challenge Card that can be used in conjunction with any other card to extend the activity. These task cards are perfect for test prep and will work well at literacy centers, stations, for partner work, or with the whole class using a game like Scoot.
These cards will look best in color, but will also print out fine in grayscale. Simply print and cut along the guidelines. Laminate and use them again and again. Alternatively, you could print on cardstock. It works well to keep them in a baggie. Another option is to hole-punch a corner of each card and put them all on a ring.
These cards help to build a foundation for Common Core Standard L.4 for grades 4, 5 and 6:
Determine or clarify the meaning of unknown and multiple-meaning words and phrases based on grade 4 reading and content, choosing flexibly from a range of strategies.
-Use common, grade-appropriate Greek and Latin affixes and roots as clues to the meaning of a word.
Another set of Word Root Task cards that uses word pairs instead of sentences can be found in the Task Card section of my TpT store.
