To differentiate spelling and vocabulary for my gifted students, I incorporate words with Greek and Latin origins. This list is a compilation of 111 Greek and Latin roots with meanings and an example English word.
You can download the list here.
Groups of Five Related Words
In addition to the list of 111 word parts, I made 35 groups of 5 related words. For example, in the “cred” group, I listed the words: accredited, incredibly, incredulous, credible, and creditor. These groups are designed to expose your students to word families one set at a time.
Five Task Cards
I also developed several activities for working with these words parts. These are fun tasks that lead to interesting products. Included are:
- Think Like An Inventor
- Greek And Latin Spellbook
