Many words in the English language are derived from Latin and Greek languages. By learning the meanings of Greek and Latin roots, students are more able to easily recognize and decode unfamiliar words in the English language. This poster set makes it easy to reinforce this concept year-round.
Each word wall poster identifies a Greek or Latin root, its meaning, and 3 examples.
