Greek Roots - Illustrated Word Wall

Greek Roots word wall with pictures

Greek roots made easy: your students already use Greek roots in everyday words but they may not realise that these words are of Greek origins. This word wall has popular Greek roots with example words and meanings on each card. This helps students to get a handle on the origins of the words and your diverse learners will benefit from the visual representations. You can use it as headers for doing ‘root of the day’ focus walls or use it as a stand alone word wall. Students can refer to it during independent reading.  The Greek roots in this set are: geo, cycl, anthropo, dys, path, aster/astro, crypto, dem, and derm, auto, bio, chron, dyna, gram, graph, hetero, homo, hydr, hypo, logy, meter/metr, micro, mis/miso, mono, morph, nym, phil, phobia, phon, photo/phos, pseudo, psycho, scope, techno, tele, and therm. Use it all year on your reference wall. You can get it here at my TpT collection of resources for teachers.

Greek Root pictures and posters

The word examples are not shown in these pictures but they are visible on the preview picture at TpT. These pictures are from the older version. It has since been updated with examples of Greek Roots on each card.

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!
