70% of words in the English language come from Greek and Latin roots. Why spend time having students learn list after list of vocab words, which students may never encounter in their reading again? Instead, teach students root words! Learning a few hundred words can help students spell and decode thousands of words!
We know that to learn new words, students need lots of practice! Use these sorts that go along with my Weekly Root Word Study resource to practice these words. This resource includes 32 sorts (6 words with each sort), along with a blank template if you decide to add your more words. Your students will love this hands-on activity!
