Greek and Latin roots are the building blocks of over 70% of the words in the English language. They are found in words that students encounter in all subjects - words like biography, chronological, coordinate, polygon, reciprocal, and more. By teaching students the meaning of prefixes, roots, and suffixes, we give them the ability to decode unfamiliar words from across the curriculum.
These worksheets are unique because the roots are grouped thematically. For example, roots related to geometrical shapes are on one worksheet - gon (angle), cycl (circle), shape (morph), side (later), etc. The thematic grouping adds interest and aids comprehension and memorization.
This resource aligns with all my other Greek and Latin roots resources.
