The ability to identify morphemes gives students a leg up on decoding and learning unfamiliar vocabulary. Vocabulary Packets: Greek and Latin roots will help introduce, reinforce, and provide practice in recognizing and identifying basic roots and cognates. Game-orientated activities and a variety of exercises will help kids engaged as they discover the deeper meanings behind words. Forty roots, 150 cognates, and 16 idioms, phrases, and maxims are covered. Organized into 5-day weekly units, students use clues to identify the target root, complete fill-in-the-blank exercises, find roots in a word search, complete a crossword puzzle, and create word cards. A new game is encountered after every two units. 64 reproducible pages, softcover. Master word list and answer key included. Grades 4-8.
