Use Word Spokes within Word Study & Vocab Development--Greek and Latin root-word instruction is an essential component of vocabulary development. (There are three types of root words: prefixes, suffixes, bases.)

According to literacy expert Timothy Rasinski, this is known as the generative principle: one root can generate the meaning of 5-20 new words.
