Yesterday I introduced Greek and Latin Roots to the students. The students have a worksheet with 20 Greek and Latin Roots on them, in which 5 will be filled out each week. We will be using the roots in sentences and playing a review game before the quiz (the quiz should occur around the middle of December). I suggested to the students that each night before they go to bed or in the morning to review the Greek and Latin Roots. This will ensure their understanding of the roots and help them as more roots are defined on their list. Look under file to the see the worksheet for the Greek and Latin Roots.
Students now all have accounts to Quia (and have been given their log in name with a password), a web based resource that allows students to take quizzes, do activities, and find resources on their own to help them with their studies. I have posted educational games to help students study for their Greek and Latin root quizzes on this site. It is a fun way to become familiar with the root words!
