This is a 27-week packet of weekly spelling and root word practice. I used this last year in my 7th grade Language Arts class, but could easily work well grade 5-9. Accompanied with my spelling vocabulary packet, you could really have students practicing and learning vocabulary regularly and explicitly each week. With daily bell ringers and exit tickets to practice these words and roots all week, students will become remarkably better at spelling and definitely words when reading contextually.
This could be spread out over the course of a year by skipping short weeks.
