Who says ancient Latin and Greek are dead languages? They live on the words we speak every day! And what useful clues they give us when we encounter them in an unfamiliar word. Introduce students to the challenge and fun of work genealogy with Words on the Vine, a 36 unit vocabulary program based on common Latin and Greek roots that will provide you with a framework for an entire school year. Use the three reproducible activity pages that come with every unit on their own, or expand your study with the extra enrichment ideas provided.
Each unit introduces ten related words and shows how their definitions can be traced back to a common meaning. Students first examine each word in context to understand its correct usage. Then they have the opportunity to put the words to work for themselves in creative and challenging assignments. Each unit provides easy-to-remember visual clues, fun-to-read usage examples, and hands-on activities. Now learners of every style can enjoy expanding their vocabulary horizons. Grades 5-8
