PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Here’s another lesson in the Cryptomania! series—three sample pages from Greek and Latin for Cryptomaniacs, the student workbook I wrote to accompany my book Cryptomania! Teleporting into Greek and Latin with the Cryptokids. (Meets CCSS.)

Students find out about the basics of roots, prefixes, and suffixes and discover that many words they know come right from Greek and Latin—senator, cursive, honor, and exit, and more.

Students can get comfortable with exploring Greek and Latin when they discover how much they already know and how it will help later with high school and college courses and with the SATs. With your guidance, they can also look online for Greek and Latin information. At the Cryptokids Facebook page they’ll find my posts for logophiles (word lovers) that relate to Greek and Latin and funny/common Latin sayings, too.

In Dig Deeper, students learn how attaching prefixes and suffixes to roots can create different parts of speech and what to do when a prefix ends with the same letter as a root begins: aqua + = arium = aquarium, not aquaarium (double "a" in middle)!
