Have you wondered how to teach your students about the most frequently-used Greek or Latin roots in a fun, easy-to-remember way? Then look no further than these short 1-1 1/2 page plays. Each play includes outrageous characters and themes that will have your kids laughing their way to learning their roots & meanings.
Set 1 includes:
*Page with Instructions
*2 plays (each with a different root)
*Worksheet for students to collect not only the roots they found in the play but other words that contain the roots as well
*2 filled-in anchor charts that contain the "root" at the bottom of a tree and the words that contain it as leaves
*1 blank anchor chart so you can customize the experience with the words YOUR class comes up with
It's quick, easy and so much fun! My students are always very motivated to read one and we do them about once-a-week. If your classroom goal on the NWEA MAP test is vocabulary, this might be a tool you can use to help your students show growth.
