Foundational Reading Lesson - Use Greek and Latin Roots to Determine the Meaning of a Word, Grade 3

  • Activity 1 / Action! Worksheet

    Most words in the English language are actually gotten from another language, or borrowed. Prefixes are words which are added to the beginning of another word in order to give it a new meaning. Suffixes, on the other hand, are added to the end of a word to change the meaning. A popular prefix is ‘act’. The Greek root ‘act’ means ‘to do’. Look at the words in this worksheet with your kids. Help them circle the words that have the root ‘act’.

  • Activity 2 / Greek and Latin Roots Worksheet

    English language has a lot of borrowed words from other languages which have now been turned into one of our own. The English language actually has many connections to the old languages, Greek and Latin. Some common Greek and Latin words that can help us determine the meaning of words we regularly use are; tri = three, sub = under, tele = distance. Ask your child to follow the words with Greek and Latin roots to make it through the maze.

We love how we can focus on math with this app. It is engaging and we love how we are able to adjust and tailor the levels according to our son’s knowledge and skill levels!

Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.
