What educators are saying

This really got students thinking about how words are built which is so much better than just a list of roots and vocab. The resource helped show how roots actually work together.
A great resource for my students to review for ACT/SAT, etc. They enjoyed the activities and many felt they were extremely helpful.


Reinforce students’ understanding of Greek and Latin roots, prefixes, and suffixes with these five worksheets that build on students’ current word knowledge and develop creative, flexible thinking. Each worksheet presents common roots and affixes (prefixes/suffixes) that are part of hundreds of English words. Once students know these word parts, they’ll be able to decode more of the higher-level vocabulary they encounter in challenging texts and standardized tests, such as the S.A.T. and A.C.T.

No previous root/affix knowledge is needed for students to successfully interact with these worksheets. Lower-level students will benefit from access to dictionaries as they complete these materials.

Can be used as regular in-class work (solo or team), homework, and/or enrichment assignments for early finishers.

This download includes:

• Five worksheets that require students to interact with a wide variety of common prefixes, roots, and suffixes

• Five completed examples/keys to show suggested answers for each worksheet
