Knowing the meanings of common Latin roots can give students such a boost when it comes to vocabulary and comprehension. We have designed these resources as a way for students to learn some of these Latin 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: Latin Root Resources
Matching Cards – Print, cut and laminate these for a quick and easy center game that will help your students memorize the Latin 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 Latin 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 Latin roots, they write them on the flaps and add the definition or a sentence underneath.
