Understanding where different parts of words come from is a huge part of vocabulary and comprehension. Students will gain valuable understanding of Latin bases with this booklet. (Latin bases is specifically cited in Common Core standards L.4.4b, L.5.4b, and L.6.4b.)
I have used this set in the classroom and as a Literacy Specialist to ensure my students have a solid understanding of common Latin Stems.
This set contains these Latin Roots: aud, capit, capt, cept, cap, ceiv, ceit, cred, dic, dict, duct, duce, duc, fac, fact, fic, fect, fer, flect, flex, form, fac, jec, ject, mit, miss, ped, pod, pend, pens, plic, plu, port, pos, pon, pose, pons, rupt, scrib, scipt, sta, stat, sist, spec, spect, stru, struct, ten, tent, tain, tend, tens, tent, tract, vert, cers, vis, vid.
This set is designed with the classroom in mind. Print, copy (single sided or front and back), cut in half, and staple for an easy-to-assemble booklet that fits conveniently in your student’s writing folder or notebook. Since there are 2 sheets per page, you need fewer copies. Whether you use this in small groups, whole groups, or as a year-long record of their Latin Roots, you will boost their vocabulary!
