Introduction Many students are good decoders—they know how to read a word by sounding out its parts

But often their comprehension of the word’s meaning is not as strong

Vocabulary knowledge is an important part of reading comprehension

Research has shown that actively involving students in learning word meanings improves students’ comprehension

In fact,

improved vocabulary strengthens all areas of literacy—listening,

Since increasing and developing students’ vocabulary will improve their overall literacy skills and reading comprehension,

research recommends teaching students the parts of words

Over 60 percent of all English words have Greek or Latin roots

They are the chunks that contain the essential core meaning of the words students read

Too often,

students skip words they do not know as they are reading

This reduces their understanding of the text

For this reason,

students need to learn how to break down the meaningful parts of unknown words

As early as second grade,

some state writing standards require that students begin to use their knowledge of roots,

and suffixes to determine the meanings of words

More Greek and Latin Roots follows the same easy-to-use format as Greek and Latin Roots,

and introduces students to 30 new roots and their meanings to support their growing vocabulary

Use the activities in More Greek and Latin Roots to teach your students how to “dissect” and comprehend multisyllabic words,

The activities in this resource incorporate all areas of literacy to maximize the transfer of vocabulary into your students’ oral language,

Each lesson has four activity pages to teach students new vocabulary:

• A take-home Word List that includes the part of speech and definition • A set of hands-on Vocabulary Sort cards students can use to match words and definitions for independent practice

• A set of Read-Around Review game cards for small-group interaction,

• A Vocabulary Quiz with multiple choice and fill-in-the blank formats to assess and extend students’ learning

Getting Started Planning and Scheduling Repetition and review are important factors when learning something new

Incorporate ongoing review activities and games into your everyday curriculum to support vocabulary learning

Ideally,

your students will over-learn these roots,

so that they become second nature to them

As students become comfortable with “dissecting” and defining word parts,

their ability to understand and use larger words will increase

Watch for students to start using the vocabulary you teach in their speech and in their writing

Review” in your classroom

Because this motto is key to the success of building vocabulary that will transfer to all areas of literacy,

More Greek and Latin Roots has been designed to support this structure

After every two Greek and/or Latin root lessons,

This serves as an easy reminder that ongoing review opportunities are critical to the transfer of learning

Teach one root each week

This will lead to a three-week teaching cycle

For example,

you would teach a new root week 1,

and review the two roots during week 3

The review tests included in the book for each pair of roots will make this schedule easy to follow

Read the information on pages 5 and 6 for directions on how to implement each activity

Use the following Suggested Weekly Plan to help you organize and guide your teaching of Greek and Latin roots and new vocabulary

Suggested Weekly Plan

Day 1: Introduce vocabulary in a pocket chart

Play a game with the new words (see page 6)

Pass out Word Lists to students

Day 2: Review vocabulary in the pocket chart

Play a game with the vocabulary words (see page 6)

Play Vocabulary Sort

Day 3: Review vocabulary in the pocket chart

Use the Read-Around Review game cards with small groups

Day 4: Review vocabulary in the pocket chart

Play a game with the vocabulary words (see page 6)

Optional: Have students make up questions they think will be on the vocabulary quiz

Day 5: Review vocabulary in the pocket chart

Have students take the Vocabulary Quiz

Teaching a Lesson Word List (Days 1–5) Each lesson begins with a list of ten vocabulary words containing the Greek or Latin root that is the focus for the lesson

The part of speech and the definition are included for each word

Make two copies of the word list for each student

Have students keep one copy at school and take the second copy home so that they can practice learning the words with their families

Follow the steps below to introduce each set of vocabulary words

Type each word in a large font

Print and mount the words on a piece of 12" × 18" (30

Do the same for each definition

Cut apart words and definitions to create individual cards

Display only the words in the pocket chart

Read each word and have students repeat it so their pronunciation is correct

After students have had the opportunity to pronounce the words correctly several times,

invite them to write the words on the board or in a notebook with the correct syllable breaks

Read one definition at a time so that students can apply logic and deduction to figure out which word it defines

Place the correct definition next to the word

Display these enlarged word cards in a pocket chart for hands-on manipulation and practice throughout the week

At the end of each week,

place the cards together on a ring and neatly store them in a hanging shoe organizer that has clear pockets

Invite students to play games with the cards independently or with partners

This will be a valuable resource during the review week in your teaching cycle

Vocabulary Sort (Day 2) Following the Word List of root words and definitions is a list of the same ten words and definitions mixed up and arranged in their own cut-apart slips of paper

This activity is intended to provide hands-on practice with the words

Copy a class set of Vocabulary Sort cards on card stock

Have 7PDBCVMBSZ 4PSUNPC N PU NPW students carefully cut apart the words and definitions,

place them in a mailing envelope,

and label the envelope with the Greek or Latin root

Have students independently match the words and definitions

Ask them to check their work by referring to their Word List

Give each student a large manila envelope to store his or her individual Vocabulary Sort card envelopes

Have students add sets of cards to this collection all year long

Invite students to use their sets of Vocabulary Sort cards during weeks you are preparing for review tests

This will give students the opportunity to match all of the words and definitions they have learned

This review will challenge students to strengthen their vocabulary as they use words learned in previous lessons

Read-Around Review (Day 3) This set of cut-apart cards includes the word definitions for all ten words presented in a practical context

Many of the definitions have been reworded to encourage students to think and apply what they have learned about the meanings of words

Use these cards to play an interactive game with your students

Copy a set of cards on card stock for each small group of three or four students

Cut apart the cards and laminate them

Place each set of cards in an envelope and write the heading ReadAround Review at the top

Label the envelope with the matching 3FBE"SPVOE 3FWJFXNP C NPU NPW Greek or Latin root (e

Give each group a set of cards

Games (Days 1,

Have students draw three lines across and three lines down to make a 4 × 4 grid similar to a tic-tac-toe board

Tell them to write the vocabulary words and roots in any boxes they want as you say the words

Have students designate one box as a “free space

” After students’ boards are filled in,

play as you would play BINGO by reading a definition and having students mark the matching vocabulary word or root on their board

What’s the Secret Word

?: Divide the class into two groups

Choose two “contestants” to stand in front of each group

Reveal a secret word to each group

Have contestants take turns calling on volunteers to share one-word clues to help them guess the secret word

Students’ clues will build on one another to narrow down the choices

For an extra challenge,

The contestant to guess the word remains at the front of the group,

and the student who gave the final clue replaces the other contestant

Repeat play with a new word

Vocabulary Baseball: Divide the class into two mixed-ability teams and designate four places in the room as “bases

” Have each batter decide if he or she wants to attempt a single,

and then have the opposing team choose a word

To hit a single,

the batter tells the definition of the word

To hit a double,

the batter tells the definition and the part of speech

To hit a triple,

the batter tells the root and its meaning

To hit a home run,

the batter tells the definition,

and uses the word correctly in a sentence

All students get a turn before teams switch places

Assessment (Day 5) Vocabulary Quiz: Use the 15-question quiz at the end of each lesson to assess students’ learning

The quizzes include multiple choice and fill-in-the-blank questions to help prepare students for standardized tests

Review Test: A 15-question review test follows every two lessons

Each test assesses students’ knowledge using a fill-in-the-blank format
