Product Description

Root Words, Root Words, Root words. Root Words are such an important skill to learn. 2 root word activities- “Root Words to Crow About” and “Nuts About Root Words.” 2 root word worksheets. I made these games using a colorful fall theme.

Who is it for?

  • 1st Graders (6 to 7-year-olds)
  • 2nd Graders, (7 to 8-year-olds)
  • 3rd Graders (8 to 9-year-olds)
  • Educators
  • Reading Learners


What's included?

  •  “Root Words to Crow About” --- This is an “I have, Who has” game. It’s perfect for the entire class. The “Who Has” questions all ask who has the root word for a particular word. I used mostly suffixes for this game, but there are a few prefixes as well. I have included 28 “I have, Who has” cards in this packet.
  • “Nuts About Root Words.” --- This is a “match” game or a concentration game. The students flip over all the cards in rows. The students will take turn flipping two cards to try to find a match. (In this case a match is a root word and the same word with a suffix or prefix added.) Another option for these cards that includes the whole class is using them for a class “Mix and Match.” Each student would be given a card. All of the students are allowed to walk around the classroom until they find the student with their match. There are 32 cards in this packet.

Seveal years ago, I began selling some of my the items I make for my classroom. I'm totally excited to be trying Educents!  I can't wait to see how it works out.
