Greek and Latin Root Games

Greek Root Small Group Activites and Games

Games and activities make learning fun! So if you are teaching about Greek and Latin Roots, your class will love playing 'I Have... Who Has...?' and you will love that they are learning in the process. For the Greek root version, examples are referenced in this game which is a great tool for memorizing the meaning of these roots.  Each of the Greek roots has a picture next to it for visual learners to connect the roots to real life and to make sense of new and unfamiliar roots.

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!
