Description

Did you know that more than 60% of English words come from Latin and Greek? Learning the roots will allow your students to approach new words with the knowledge to unlock their meaning. Learning the roots also can help your child make connections to Spanish, French and Italian, as they originated from Latin.

Because it uses an inquiry based approach, this PPT is perfect for introducing the most common Latin and Greek roots to your students!

This PPT includes 100 roots. Three slides are included for each root:

  • Slide 1 lists three words that all come from a particular root; students write these in their notebooks, circle the common root in each word and guess the meaning
  • Slide 2 provides the meaning of the root and a picture
  • Slide 3 provides the definitions of the words in slide 1; each definition includes the meaning of the root

I've found that this activity is a great way to begin my middle school ELA classes and I think you will agree!
