These Greek roots resources have been designed as a way for students to learn independently or through reading with the use of an interactive notebook.
We have created these Greek roots resources to round out what we posted last week for Latin roots. The resources are the same types, but have a different background for easy sorting in case you would like to use both sets. Learning the meanings of common roots can give students such a boost when it comes to vocabulary and comprehension. We have designed both of these resources as a way for students to learn some of these roots independently at a center or through finding them in their reading & recording them on pages of an interactive language notebook.
All of the following resources can be found in one download here: Greek Roots Resources
Matching Cards – Print, cut and laminate these for a quick and easy center game that will help your students memorize the Greek roots and their meanings.
Latin Roots At-A-Glance – Copy this page and place it on a bulletin board for quick reference for students or copy the black & white version for students to place in a binder or notebook.
Word Map – This page can also be used for interactive notebooks or to introduce and help students learn other Greek roots they find.
Excellent Examples Work Mats – Copy and laminate these pages for a quick review center for groups.
Interactive Notebook Pages – These pages are meant to be cut and added to interactive notebooks. (You may choose to shrink them if you want to fit more than one on a page.) Students cut them out and glue them into their notebooks. As they find examples of words containing these Greek roots, they write them on the flaps and add the definition or a sentence underneath.
You will find our Latin Roots Resources great to add to this set.
