This vocabulary study focuses on Latin and Greek roots. I wanted my students to focus on words that were a little more challenging being that the Common Core has upped the standards. Also, I found that simple spelling tests were not cutting it in 5th grade. My students were acing them (which isn't a terrible thing), but we are not allowed to use the tests when calculating their grades (kind of a waste of 10 minutes). After thinking, I decided a focus on vocabulary would be a better use of our educational time and I get to use their quizzes as actual grades! Yahoo!
For each week, there are two roots for students to study. There are only 10 words to learn each week. I provided a homework schedule, but you can choose whatever you feel is best!
Each list of words has a quiz. In addition, after about 6 lists there is an overall root word quiz. The A lists are geared toward 4th/5th and the B lists are 5th/6th.
There is no answer key to this, but I'm sure you'd be able to figure it out easily :)
