Almost 70% of the English language is derived from Latin and Greek languages. When students learn these “building blocks” it becomes easy for them to recognize and decode unfamiliar words that are related to a known root. It is also increasingly important to explicitly teach students the meanings of Greek and Latin roots as they encounter the very technical vocabulary found in science and other content areas.
Now you can easily present these essential components of English with these engaging and visually stunning PowerPoint presentations!
What’s included in this resource?
This resource is an extensive collection of 20 different PowerPoint presentations, each one covering three different roots. Each presentation includes ten high-utility words, one word per slide. Each slide includes a clear, concise definition, the word used in context, and a carefully selected image that will further emphasize the meaning and application of the word. Download the preview for a complete look at the Unit 1 PowerPoint.
These PowerPoints are an effective stand-alone resource for your classroom. However, if you are looking to extend and deepen your students’ vocabulary skills, then check out my Get to the Root of It: Book 2. The units from this book are perfectly aligned to the PowerPoints within this resource.
