This 2 page Roots Profile is the BEST activity from my roots lesson. This printable worksheet is similar to creating a resume- or a Facebook page- for a single root. This activity challenges students to think creatively to make connections to the root. (For example, who would its family members be? Students may choose words using the root, as well as words that resemble the definition.) This activity can be used by individuals, pairs, or groups.
The final product is great to display outside your classroom door- allowing others to learn roots as well!
A sample is included!
Learning to identify root words is a valuable lesson that will assist students decode unfamiliar words – on into college. By mastering one root, students will be equipped to decode many unfamiliar words.
Focus: CCSS Literacy Standards L.6.4, 6.4B, 7.4, 7.4B, 8.4, and 8.4B.
The Root Profile can be repeated for as many roots as you like, allowing you to re-use this activity throughout the year.
