Storyboard Paper - great option - students create "graphic novel" in lieu of reading response/summary

I've been using these word wall cards for roots and affixes in my classroom for years. It started a few school years ago, when I made cards for roots that my students encountered in my literacy and drawing classes. Over the years, I've added cards for science, math, and social studies teachers, too. This summer I had a chance to add even more, reorganize and color code them. There are over 240 cards in the set, covering all the common Greek, Latin and Anglo-Saxon prefixes, roots, and suffixes.

This is a COMPLETE mnemonic unit on eighty-four Greek and Latin roots that are the building blocks of thousands of English words. By the time your students are finished with this unit, they will have memorized the meanings of these eighty-four common Greek and Latin roots. As a result, they will be able to figure out the meaning of thousands of English words. I made it about five years ago for 8th graders. Been using it ever since for a variety of grade levels!

Differences between Inference and Prediction. Excellent to use when introducing inferences. Students can tell what they know about predictions, and then learn about how inferenceing is different.
