The vocabulary card game: Digging for Roots - Root Word Triplets was created to enrich my students vocabulary. Students begin to understand how word roots are used to create many derivative words. I play the card game with them at the "Teacher Table" as a mini-lesson first. Then students are able to play the card game at the vocabulary literacy station. Students are encouraged to say all the words that make up the triplet set and tell the meaning of each (or use it in a sentence.) I always have a dictionary close by to model researching skills.
