Greek and Latin roots are the building blocks to thousands of words. If we can teach them to students in a meaningful way, we open the doors to stronger vocabulary and better reading comprehension. Students who study morphology are taught to use a critical eye when approaching words. Question it. Find out its origin. See what words can be built with it. How can we combine forms to create new words? These are the guiding questions to deepen their understanding.
The Literacy Nest is the decodable text source for a wide variety of text to support your students with a systematic, sequential progression.
