Decoding Detectives is a Ready-to-Go Weekly Vocabulary Program that I developed with the Common Core State Standards in mind. It helps Student “Detectives” unlock and decode the meaning of Greek and Latin Roots.
This is a 4 WEEK/20 GREEK ROOT STUDY!
If you are interested in individual units, please check out my product page!
The activities lend well to a quick weekly study of the five roots and words with those roots (cognates). Engaging activities allow for repeated practice and application of the roots and associated words.
Use the root/word studies as morning work or even a Literacy Center Station. Materials are very good for individual and cooperative work, as well as homework activities. Use them HOWEVER you see fit!
Included with THESE 4 UNITS:
• List of the 20 Roots and Their Definitions
• A TOTAL OF 60 Cognates (words with the root within) with Definitions
