Whoops! Something went wrong.

# Numbers Count, Part I

Product Description
Here’s another lesson in the Cryptomania! series—three sample pages from Greek and Latin for Cryptomaniacs, the student workbook I wrote to accompany my book Cryptomania! Teleporting into Greek and Latin with the Cryptokids. (Meets CCSS.)

This first look at number words teaches Greek and Latin prefixes and combining forms for the numbers 1 to ten, plus 10, 50, 100, and 1,000. You’ll find Roman numeral play on one page. On another, students sort a list of English words with number roots—like “triple” and “octave”—by number. “Tri-“ words go in the “3” box; “octave” goes in the “8” box. There’s also a whole page with the roots for types of triangles, so students know the inside story on words like “equilateral” and “isosceles.”

Using these Greek and Latin number clues as a springboard, students can unlock many more words. (Think of the word “dicot” in botany. Your students don’t have to know its exact meaning, but they’ll spot “di” and make the smart guess that this term relates to “two.”)
