This lesson is designed to help students remember Greek and Latin roots. The ultimate goal would be that students learn each and every word, but since that isn't likely to be the case, it would benefit students to remember the root words and then use context clues in their reading to put the information together and make sense of their reading. Additionally, if students learn the roots, it is helpful when trying to decipher vocabulary words. My students enjoy this activity. We complete Etymon Cards during the entire school year, and when one card is finished, students are always asking when we will begin the next one!
