This year I have been using Teaching in Room 6's Root Word Homework and I (and the kids) LOVE it!!! The trifolds give the students the opportunity to learn the origin of the word, the meaning,other words containing the root, and finally a little assessment after every four words. Above is an example of what the sheet looks like!
Next, I had the students show their knowledge of the root by listing different words with that root. They also chose their favorite word containing the root. They created an illustration depicting their word, wrote the definition and finally wrote a quality sentence. These look FABULOUS hanging up in our room and I can't wait for the students to add more! (Possibly an early finisher activity???)
Do you have a root word wall in your classroom?
