Trying to improve your students' vocabulary? Try studying root words! This is a perfect warm- up for language arts class and is aligned to Common Core Language Standard 4 - "Determine or clarify the meaning of unknown and multiple-meaning words . . . analyzing meaningful word parts."
This product includes:
- Instructions & tips
- Power Point presentation for 10 root words (bio, geo, hydro, equ, nym, areo, ver, cosm, arch, and therm).
* 6-10 examples of words containing this root to help you and your students get started.
- Quiz & answer key to check for mastery.
I recommend using the powerpoint for the first 10 - 15 minutes of class each day for two weeks. Then give your students the quiz on each of the root words.
