Product of the Week: Vocab Exercises in Greek and Latin Roots

http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Vocabulary-Exercise-Greek-and-Latin-Roots-Numbers-133694 

One of the most important strategies for determining the meaning of new words is by understanding Greek and Latin Roots.  This bundle of vocabulary exercises introduces students to 6 roots having to do with numbers: mono, bi, di, duo, tri, and multi.  

Inside the pack are 4 worksheets that give students information about the roots.  Each worksheet is focused on a different root and includes 7-10 sentences using words that contain the root.  Take a sneak peak at a sample worksheet below: 


The bundle also includes a quiz covering all four roots as well as an answer key.  

I have used this bundle very successfully as bellwork.  Each day, students use context clues and root knowledge to determine the meaning of the underlined word.  I have loved watching students' vocabulary and context clue skills blossom!  

The product is a bargain at $3.25.  You can find it at my Teachers Pay Teachers store!

Have a great week!

  1. Hi,

    I happened to chance upon your blog and found it very interesting!

    We have recently launched a science app that uses augmented reality to enhance classroom teaching. The app has 3D models for kindergarten to grade 12. I thought you might want to check it out and may be review it on your blog, if possible.

    It is a paid app(with a few models free) but in case you are interested in trying it out I will be happy to provide you with a free copy.

    The link to the app is:

    You can also search for the app on the app store as 'Augmenter'.

    Do let me know if you would be interested. I am really Looking forward to your response.

    happy teaching!
