PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This document contains 24 Word Study Practice sheets that introduce 120 roots and affixes. I introduce five new roots/affixes each week using these Word Study Practice sheets. Students must look up the definitions of the two example words and find two new words for each root/affix. After we study each root/affix, I create a mini-poster with the root and meaning and put it up somewhere in the room. It's fun for the kids to see the new posters go up in the room each week. When we come across a new vocabulary word with a root or affix we've studied, they are excited to point it out. Please also see the Reference Table I've posted. They're designed to complement each other.

Product Questions & Answers

On  August 30, 2011,  Lisa V. asked:
Dear Stephanie,
I am very excited about (and just purchased) the Greek and Latin Word Study Unit! Each teacher in our 7th-grade team is tasked with finding/creating/borrowing a new word study unit to possibly implement, and this is just what I was looking for! You mentioned in the product description that there were Greek and Latin Challenge activities to complement the unit but I could not find them. I was curious about those - are they available too? Thanks so much!
-Lisa

On  August 31, 2011ELA Teacher 522 answered:
Hi Lisa,

I'm glad you liked the unit! My student have found the lessons helpful, so I hope yours will too. I took down the challenges because my students had difficulty with them. I'm planning on modifying them to make them more manageable, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. Some of the words were too difficult for 7th graders, so I ended up using the challenges as extra credit.

That being said, I just uploaded them to the site and listed them as free. I'll keep it up for a few days so you can download the file. Maybe you can modify it to make it work. Good luck!

Stephanie
