￼￼This resource has been created to complement the Words Their Way spelling program. It is ideal for Derivational Relations Spellers who are working through units 5 through to 7 studying Greek and Latin Elements. This activity can be timetabled once a fortnight or if you’re using our Mid to Late Derivational Spellers Timetable (available for purchase from our TpT store) can become one of the Spelling Game choices for students.
Words that Grow can be a small group or individual activity. Students select a Greek or Latin Root from their current sort and place it in the box at the bottom of the tree. The students then ‘grow’ words from this root. Encourage them to discover words not in their sort by searching through a range of texts. This page can be referred back to while the children are writing to encourage them to expand their vocabulary.
This download includes an example and a blank Word Tree for you to print.
