Our first is a FLASH FREEBIE for a limited time--- our Story of Greek Roots! 
This is GREAT way to kick of your root study in the primary and 
even secondary classrooms!!!

For those of you implementing Reading Olympians or Reading Warriors, you know how obsessed students become with roots!  One component of our program is providing students with a reading necklace.  Based on the color sets in Reading O or Reading Warriors, as they find roots they earn a color coordinated bead for their necklaces.  This is very motivating but as they learn roots, and realize roots are EVERYWHERE--it can get distractive to have them blurting out roots all the time. A great problem to have--but a problem all the same:)  This card will provide structure for their root discovery.  Each time they find or hear a root, they no longer blurt, but silently complete their bead card.  You can distribute beads as you wish, but we have a student leader do it at the end of the day.  It takes NO learning time and it totally student run.  
Please ask us any questions you have!!!


  1. I love this idea! My nieces take Latin and I have learned so much from them over the past 8 years. I am a word junkie...I am also Greek! =)
