Word Roots A1 (PDF)
According to national standards, students in grades 4 – 12 must now be able to demonstrate their knowledge of how to use common Greek and Latin roots for analyzing the meaning of complex words.
Lovely! Isn't this just what we needed, one more requirement from the government that our children will be tested for yearly? Yet surprisingly enough, it is one that makes sense.
Children who have a solid grasp of word roots are bound to be children with better spelling and reading comprehension skills primarily because they have acquired the ability to decode words. But regardless of the benefit, you're probably not looking for another task. In that case, assuming your children are independent learners, you will appreciate the Word Roots series.
Written for grades four and up, Word Roots will teach your children the meanings of Latin (and Greek in more advanced levels) prefixes, roots, and suffixes of words commonly used in English. A pre/post test, answers, and glossary are included. And with reproducible pages, the entire family can be prepared for any assessment tests their state throws at them. Level A1 teaches Latin only.
For each lesson students first learn the meanings of prefixes, roots, and suffixes. Then they:
Divide known and unknown words into their elements or assemble elements to form whole words.
Match word parts or whole words to their definitions by analyzing their meanings.
Apply their new vocabulary in sentences.
