PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Basic Cells: Building a Living Vocabulary from Greek and Latin Roots

The book starts with suggestions for how to use the Basic Cells to teach Greek and Latin roots, English vocabulary, conventions, and writing style every day.
There are 170 short illustrated lessons, each designed to teach one basic cell—a single Greek or Latin root—as well as one English vocabulary word.
Virtually all lessons include additional words with meanings to show other examples of how the Basic Cell is used to form other words.
Lessons are groups into six categories:
• set 1 Numbers and Order
• set 2 God, Nature, and Animal Activity
• set 3 Humans and Human Activity
• set 4 Body, Life, and Disorders
• set 5 Negatives and Verbs
• set 6 When and Where
After each category there are a full set of review words with their Basic Cells highlighted and their meanings given.
At the end of the book there are also worksheets for students to practice Basic Cells with additional words for them to define and use in sentences.
In all there are over 500 defined words, and nearly every one of the 170 Basic Cells is taught three times.

You can use Basic Cells: Building a Living Vocabulary from Greek and Latin Roots over the course of three years in a middle school, using the main words one year, sentence words one year, and review words another year.

I use Basic Cells my fourth and fifth graders. Just pick the English words that suit your students—there are lots to choose from! I start every day with my Basic Cells. My students love them!
