Greek and Latin roots are important vocabulary concepts for you to teach and for students to learn! Let them practice with this fun and engaging game that will make the skill of defining them something students WANT to do! Works great for literacy centers or small group. Students will be begging to practice Greek and Latin roots with this activity! I’ve had many students ask to play at recess and even lunch!

What is U-Know?
U-Know is a fun and engaging card game where students practice topics in a repetitive way. I also use U-Know in stations or with early finishers throughout the year to spiral concepts for students. U-Know comes in MANY topics! So, once students learn the game, it will become a self-run station!

U-Know is played with students matching color/number to the card the previous player put down. Once they put their card down, they must read and answer. If correct, play moves on. If incorrect, player draws 2 new cards and play moves on. Students check answers with the included answer key.

This game can also be found in the following BUNDLES:
*ELA U-Know Bundle 1
*ELA U-Know MEGA Bundle
*Math & ELA MEGA Bundle

So please double check what's included if you've purchased any of those.
