Product Description
Using Known Root Words as a Clue to Unknown Words is an excellent way for students to grow larger vocabularies!

Over 60% of English words have sprouted from Greek or Latin roots. At least 90% of the science words in English have grown from Greek and Latin roots. Therefore, studying root words helps students’ vocabulary to develop.

Your students will focus on one word stem each week, and also learn 24 related vocabulary words during the month.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++This no-prep word roots(word stems) packet is made extra cute by the February theme.

This unit is designed for third grade, but may be used for advanced 2nd grade students or for 4th grade students.
