Product Description
I am so excited to share this product with you! One of the best things we can teach our students (in my humble opinion) are Greek and Latin word parts (roots, prefixes, suffixes, etc.). It is a phenomenal tool for vocabulary and language acquisition, and I love seeing students become increasingly independent readers once they have mastered these basic word parts. They come to realize so many words in the English language are like little puzzles, made of pieces they already know!

This 5-week unit covers 80 words, focusing on 20 Greek and Latin word parts. It's broken down into 4 1-week units with the fifth and final week being used to review and complete a final exam. There are even a few options to differentiate based on your learners.

Homework is laid out for the duration of the unit, and four vocabulary quizzes are included to conclude each week. Answer keys for all assessments are included.

This is designed to be an easy "print-and-go" unit for teachers, but very helpful to students. I have used this in my middle school classroom for the past three years and have seen great growth in my students' vocabulary because of it. What's more, learning these word parts seems to "stick" and transfer much more than rote memorization of words and definitions. I hope you enjoy! Happy teaching!
