Product Description
Build student vocabulary through root words! This is an excellent tool for teaching students about root words and their meanings. Students will see that many words can stem from one root word. Use this tree diagram for students to write the root word and its meaning, as well as five related words and their meanings. Common Core aligned!

This product includes 3 pages: one with 5 spaces for words, one with 4 spaces for words, and one with 3 spaces for words. Check out the end of the product description for links to websites with root words to use in the organizer!

How it Works
For example, write the root word "spec" at the bottom (roots of the tree) with its meaning "see, look," and then write five words containing "spec" in the branches: inspect, spectator, retrospect, speculate, perspective. Choose appropriate definitions based on your students' grade level and understanding, or have students look up the definitions themselves. You can even use Adobe Reader or a similar program to provide partial or fill-in-the-blank definitions for students who have difficulty with handwriting.

Note: This organizer fits perfectly in a standard composition notebook if you cut along the line on the page. Or, if you prefer, they also work well as a full-page organizer for use in a binder or as a handout. Click "preview" to see what this page looks like in a composition notebook.

These websites are great for finding root words and definitions! https://www.learnthat.org/pages/view/roots.html
