This is an entire week of vocabulary lessons centering on ten root words. It includes homework assignment, and a game to play in class.
Game: Kaboom! Cut strips and put into a cup. Then write the word KABOOM on two strips. Students will take turns blindly picking a strip from the cup and trying to decide with their group as to what the word means in context. If they get the answer right, they get to keep the strip. If they pick a KABOOM they must put ALL of their strips back. The winner is the person with the most strips at the end of the lesson.
