Are you wanting to teach Greek and Latin Roots Set 1 at a faster pace? This set allows you to teach one word list each week so if you have Set 1 and Set 2, you will have a 36 week program.

Set 2 and it includes 16 weeks of lessons (lessons 21 – 36) and teaches 80 Greek and Latin word stems and roots. Each lesson introduces five new stems/roots and includes posters giving three example words, definitions, and visual. Students practice the roots and stems using six activities included in the set and can keep their work in their Word Masters Journal. Each lesson includes an assessment and answer key and there’s a teacher grade book sheet in MS Word format you can type scores into. Students will track and record their own progress on the form provided. Teacher directions, pacing, hints and tips included.

This set follows the same format as my Word Masters Set 1 with the only difference being the lesson tests include the week’s five words and not the review from the previous week as well. Students track and graph their own progress and the teacher has the MS Word version of a grade book page to record progress.
