Building vocabulary has been a huge challenge this year, and I wanted a way to quickly and simply introduce my students to Greek and Latin roots. I created this Root of the Week resource to turn hallway transitions into meaningful moments for learning, as well as, quickly focus students as they enter the classroom.
Each day, students lead/participate in a simple activity – record it, list it, picture it, chant it, and teach it. Each activity requires less than 4 minutes (totaling 15 minutes throughout the week). These simple and no-prep activities immediately throw us into learning.
Included in this resource:
*Weekly Game Plan (daily no-prep activities)
*33 Root of the Week cards (ad, aqua/hydr, astr, aud, auto, been/bon, bio, chron, dict, geo, graph, inter, jut, log, luna, meter, mitt, path, phone, photo, port, rupt, scrub/scrip, sk(c)op, spect, struct, therm, terra, tract, trans, vac, voc, vis/vid
*Editable Root Word Card Template
*Root of the Week recording log
*Root of the Week Frayer models
If you have any questions, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to talk with you!
