This is a root word based vocabulary unit I have developed for my middle school Language Arts students. I use the Word of the Day as a bellringer or warm-up activity.
This unit is intended to last 17-18 weeks. Each week long mini-unit includes a root word, related vocabulary words, and a quiz--with answer key. I have also included the graphic organizer my students use to record their words. There are 12 5-word mini-units, 1 4-word mini-unit,1 9-word mini-unit, and 2 3-word mini-units.
Everything is editable, so feel free to move things around to fit your school's calendar, add words to the mini-units, or change the sentences and definitions. I highly encourage you to read through the sentences before posting for your students. I work in a faith-based school and some of my sentences would be less effective in a secular setting.
I intend to update this file with 17 more weeks of words & roots, and the review activities I use before finals. The price will go up significantly when that happens, so get it while its cheap!
