This 5 week vocabulary unit use related roots to build upon each previous week. At the end of this unit, students will know 5 prefixes, 23 roots referring to numbers, and many words.
What I did with this unit is include quizzes that build upon each previous week. The students were scared about the unit test at the end, but out of the 60 students who took the test, there was not one score below a B! They all agreed that they knew the words better than they realized because of using them each week.
I have used this 5 week vocabualry unit with 6, 7 and 8th grade gifted students. However, the easy-to-use Microsoft Format makes this easy to modify for your specific classroom!
