Teaching Greek and Latin Roots in 5th Grade

Hi y'all! If you're following me on Instagram, then you already know, but I am so excited to have this unit done! It has been a busy, busy late winter/spring for me and TpT and the blog kind of got pushed to the back burner for a bit. Hopefully I'm back for good and everything else sorta slows down right now. Fingers crossed! :)

Anyways, I'm hoping to get into a routine of blogging more consistently here on Life in Fifth Grade. I've had two really productive days in my home office, so I have high hopes! LOL 
Today I'm sharing my latest unit. My Greek and Latin Roots unit is finally finished and uploaded! This is the first unit I've uploaded since January! I am SO happy to have this one done and in the store. Some units almost create themselves they are so easy, but this one was a challenge! I'm not a huge fan of teaching Greek and Latin Roots (more power to you if you love it!) and so I think that was the reason why I wasn't motivated. I am so happy with the way it turned out though and I'm hoping it will inspire me to be more creative when it comes to teaching this vocabulary/word analysis skill!

Here's a little preview of what is included in the 180+ page unit. It also comes with a PowerPoint Presentation that you can show and use as a little review/practice game. I asked on Instagram, but if you use Google Drive/Classroom in your classroom, let me know! I am thinking about creating digital versions of some of my resources for y'all to use! :) 

You can find this Greek and Latin Roots Unit here. Psst! Be sure and check out the end of this post for a chance to win the unit! :)






You can find my A Trait A Day unit here and my Fun with Idioms unit here. I plan on sharing more about how to use these three units together soon! :)



Want to win a copy?? Leave a comment below telling me one of your favorite skills to teach and I'll randomly pick two winners tomorrow morning! Be sure and leave an email! :)

  7. I teach Fifth Grade also! I love teaching fifth just because of the wide variety of skills you get to teach and also skills you have to review. My favorite thing to teach though is prepositions and interjections. They love them. Once they get the hang of it my students love having fun with it. We have songs and dances that go along with them that the kids have created. Overall, it is just a really fun ELA lesson to teach. My email is jordan.rackley@gocats.org

  39. I have taught 6th Grade ELAR for two years and this year I'm going down to 5th ELAR. My favorite thing to teach is poetry because kids LOVE figurative language, and it is so cool to see the poems they come up with. Kids who struggle with reading skills end up with incredibly deep or funny poems. And then my kiddos who consistently bomb tests in other genres excel on poetry tests! I just love that it gets the creative side of the brain working more than other genres tend to do.

    Vocab is always a struggle for me to teach, as I teach a high population of English Language Learners. I would love to win this unit!

  52. Fifth grade is the best grade! My favorite thing to teach is how to navigate social media and the news! I love talking to them about "fake news" and encouraging them to form their own opinions based on their own research instead of just accepting social media articles as the truth. We also talk about using social media positively and lifting our friends up. That usually goes well with reading Fish in a Tree or Out of My Mind.

  76. Hi there! I teach 4th grade- all subjects! My favorite skill to teach is analyzing a character's actions, thoughts, and feelings through read aloud.

  106. I teach 5th Grade ELA, and am going into my 2nd year of teaching. This Latin and Greek resource would be very useful in my classroom as I am building my "toolbox" or "repertoire" of resources and different things. My favorite topic to teach is antonyms and synonyms. I made up a little jingle to go with the topic when I teach it in order for students to "get it."

  108. My favorite thing to teach centers around the book The Power of Pictures by Beth Olshansky. You have students create a piece of art (using more in depth art materials like water colors, oil pastels, etc.). Then, students find 3-4 (you could do more) nouns in their picture. Students then plan out ways to describe the noun: what is it doing? How does it feel? etc. They then use their planning sheet to create a piece of writing about their picture. It really helps reluctant writers because they have it in front of them and don't have to think as much. I highly recommend!

  109. This is my second year teaching 5th grade. I enjoyed many aspects of teaching,, but my favorite is words and grammar. This would be a perfect study to add, as I was looking for a great Greek/Latin study last year �� Abenz@psd202.org

  111. My favorite skill to teach is finding text evidence. This shows me students truly understand what they are reading. This skill carries through in small reading groups, independent reading and in their written responses. I also like doing word work with students because once they understand the different syllable types their reading and spelling both improve.

  112. I love teaching Greek and Latin roots because children begin to discover how words work and they are able to make meaningful on their own. I teach a 3,4, 5 combo class and each grade enjoys this part of word study.

    ReplyDelete
  113. My favorite skill to teach is the use of context clues. I teach K-6 ESL and vocabulary is one of my students' needs. Using context clues helps them figure out unknown words quickly so they can comprehend what they are reading. I want to start focusing on Greek and Latin roots. That way, they will be able to figure out the meaning of words using its parts.

    ReplyDelete
  114. I have tried to teach greek and latin root words but the original item that I bought from TPT teaches too many words at one time. This resource will allow me to really dig into teaching roots on a level where my kids can learn and be successful. I hope I win. planningnpieces@yahoo.com

  115. I am trying to incorporate teaching the Latin/Greek roots into my reading block, so I do have some of your units. I love how you have added a section for a drawing/picture. I teach 5th grade but have my kids do sketches for note taking and definitions. Keep up the great work111

  117. This will be my first year teaching 5th/6th grade ELA and I'm ecstatic! I have taught K-1 for the last 10 years. I truly look forward to incorporating SO many of your units that I have purchased. However, I am excited about teaching figurative language. I am huge on integrating songs and movements to help students retain the information, and I intend on having the students find many examples in the texts, as they participate in book clubs, read alouds, and in their independent reading. Thanks for all your hard work!

    I have been teaching 5th grade for 12 years and it is, by far, my favorite grade to teach. One of my favorite things to teach in 5th grade is reading strategies. I love to do this through my daily read aloud. There is nothing more exciting than getting kids excited about reading.

  120. I have two fifth grade classes - one enriched and one inclusion. I love teaching all parts of ELA. I enjoy seeing the delight in faces that have discovered a new author, a new word or have perked up to share their thoughts and feelings through writing. Watching persistence grow with a new mindset is my favorite part of the day.
