Latin Roots - Illustrated Definitions and Examples for CCSS L.4.4b, L.5.4b

Latin Roots - Illustrated Definitions and Examples for CCSS L.4.4b, L.5.4b

Use these Illustrated Latin Root cards to keep your students engaged in fun activities that reinforce the definition of each Latin root with examples and definitions of words that take on the meaning of the roots that they contain. Instructions are included for two games your students can play with these cards; the 'Say It, Keep It' game and the 'Root Buzz' game.


Thirty-two of the most commonly used Latin roots are used in these cards. They are: ambi, aqua, aud, bene, cent, circum, contra, counter, dict, duc/duct, fac, form, fort, fract, ject, jud, mal, mater, mit, mort, multi, pater, port, rupt, scrib/scribe, sec/sect, sent, spec, struct, vid/vis, and voc.

These cards are created in two different sizes. The original set has 8 cards per page and the larger set has 2 cards per page. The small set will save you ink and paper but many teachers have indicated to me that they preferred to have a larger set to make a bulletin board display. So, that's why I added the larger version.

A storage box template is also included for these cards and you can get all of this at Nyla's Crafty Teaching, TpT.

Aligned to Common Core Standards (CCSS): L.4.4b and L.5.4b

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
