This free download is one of the 5 sets that are included in the entire set of Jr. Reading Olympians. Each set is listed individually as well as bundled. This set teaches one set of 5 roots. This single set (as well as the entire program Jr. Reading Olympians) can be downloaded one day and implemented the next and can be started any time of year!!! Jr. Reading Olympians is a valuable resource for educators and home schoolers. The program is designed to teach the Greek and Latin roots in a fun and engaging way. The program breaks 25 roots into 5 sets and each group is named after a Greek figure. When a student masters a set, he/she becomes a member of that group-for example the Nike or Poseidon group. When they master all 5 sets the become a Jr. Olympian!! There are fun extensions of the program on our website (listed below)!!

Why teach the roots?
*Research strongly supports the teaching of roots to increase vocabulary
*Roots are learning objectives of the new Common Core Standards
*Learning one root is a gateway to a multitude of words
*Roots provide at risk readers with an increased meaningful vocabulary and higher readers with a deep understanding of the language
FOR EXAMPLE: autobiography: auto (self) bio (life) graph(write)
**DISCLAIMER** Our product is not based on the true Greek Mythological characters of the Olympians it is meant to be only a general introduction to Greek Mythology with the main objective being the teaching of Greek and Latin roots.
