I’m so excited to tell you about this new project I’ve been working on, but since my friend Heidi from The Doodle Oven does a much better job of telling it than me, I’m just going to let her do it!
When I was a child, our school did not have the most advanced curriculum, any cutting edge technology, or even innovative resources. However, the educators at the time did feel it was vital that we learn our Latin & Green roots, suffixes, prefixes.
And so we did.
Fast Forward to the Present.
So when my friend Erin from Lovin’ Lit asked me to work on this Greek & Latin Roots project with her, I was thrilled! Erin told me that she was creating some vocabulary materials for the middle grades, and she felt like something was missing. Erin and I brainstormed ways for students to practice and memorize root words without simply doing worksheet after worksheet, and that’s how this set was born!
The beauty of these coloring pages is that they are truly universal.
