First Batch of Word Roots: QUIZ October 4th and 5th

Knowing the meaning of a root, prefix, or suffix can help you figure out the meaning of an unfamiliar word. So, we've been exploring roots and new words. Now that we have 19 roots/prefixes/suffixes added to our four column notes, it's time to study them.

Don't forget to add FOLI meaning leaf or sheet and all the words from our lesson on FOLI.

To fill in your chart, copy the roots and their definitions.  Then, brainstorm as many words as possible (at least 4 per root) that fit that meaning.  For example, if the root is CRED.  Here's how you fill that in. 

You do this process for each word.  The sheet is designed to be folded so that you can hide the definitions and examples while you quiz yourself.  We'll have a roots quiz on 10/4 for A day and 10/5 for B day.

If you are missing any of the roots, see the picture above to add what you are missing. Extra copies of the form are available in the handout bin (in class) or on the portal.
