Learning Greek The Fun Way! - Bundle

Learning Greek The Fun Way! - Bundle

Are you learning Greek? Are you looking for a fun way to learn Greek? I have developed a way to learn different languages based on my experience as an ESL teacher. This pack has 57 different settings for students to talk about in Greek. The worksheets themselves are in English and the students do need to translate the places and objects they see into Greek. At the end of the session, the students can play a fun game of word bingo to show they have mastered that day's vocabulary. Try it, it is a lot of fun for everyone!

Prefix, Suffix, Greek and Latin Root Word Wall Bundle

Prefix, Suffix, Greek and Latin Root Word Wall Bundle

Prefix Suffix and Greek and Latin Roots Word Wall Bundle. In this zipped bundle you get the 4 in 1 word wall bundle of Prefixes, Suffixes, Greek Roots, and Latin Roots. There are 36 prefix word wall cards, 36 suffix word wall cards, 27 Greek Root word wall cards, and 33 Latin root word wall cards in this set. The definitions and illustrations are on each word card which makes this a great tool for memorizing the meaning of these roots and affixes. The illustrations are for visual learners to connect the roots and affixes to real life and to make sense of new and unfamiliar words. Just print, cut out and laminate the cards and use them as headers for doing ‘root of the day’ focus walls or use them as stand alone word walls. The prefixes are: mis, de, a, ab, abs, fore, tri, pre, re, dis, in, dif, semi, micro, ex, un, *im, sub, inter, pro, *im, tele, bi, super, under, uni/mono, bi/duo, tri, tetra/quad, quint/penta, sex/hexa, hepta/sept, oct, nona, deca, hecto, and kilo.* Note that the prefix ‘im-‘ has two meanings; one is ‘into’ and the other is ‘not’, so I have created two separate cards for the prefix ‘im-‘.The suffixes are: ous, ory, ly, ling, el, fy, ant, able, ible, ness, ess, ment, er, less, ence, ive, eer, ier, et, or, ism, ship, hood, ful, dom, ist, en, sion, ish, *al, acy, *al, ate, tion, ical, and esque.* Note that there are two different cards for the suffix ‘al’ because it has two different meanings.The Greek roots are: auto, bio, chron, dyna, gram, graph, hetero, homo, hydr, hypo, logy, meter/metr, micro, mis/miso, mono, morph, nym, phil, phobia, phon, photo/phos, pseudo, psycho, scope, techno, tele, and therm. The Latin roots are: ambi, aqua, aud, bene, cent, circum, contra, counter, dict, duc/duct, fac, form, fort, fract, ject, jud, mal, mater, mit, mort, multi, pater, port, rupt, scrib/scribe, sec/sect, sent, spec, struct, vid/vis, voc, fin/finit, and mob/mov/mot.TeacherNylaNyla's Crafty Teaching

Greek Roots Word Wall

Greek Root Word Wall: This is an illustrated Greek Root word wall. Each Greek Root card has a matching picture with a short definition in brackets.

Twenty-seven of the most commonly used Greek roots are used in these cards: auto, bio, chron, dyna, gram, graph, hetero, homo, hydr, hypo, logy, meter/metr, micro, mis/miso, mono, morph, nym, phil, phobia, phon, photo/phos, pseudo, psycho, scope, techno, tele, and therm.

Let's talk about gender roles

Let's talk about gender roles

I have bundled together three resources which I think will be useful when discussing gender roles in poetry and drama. They all address the roles women play, as wives, mothers , lovers. The quiz is more generally about Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet but some of the questions refer to the fact that Juliet would have been played by a boy back in the seventeenth century. It is light hearted in tone.

Timeline Ancient Greece Poster

Timeline Ancient Greece Poster

This timeline shows the history of the Ancient Greek Civilisation, divided into the most common periods. Above the timeline you will find a short description of the highlights of each period in the same colour as that period on the timeline. Below the timeline, important events are added in the colours of each period. The specific events that marked the transitions between the different periods are added with thicker borders and fading colours.I refer to this poster almost every lesson when I'm teaching Greek or ancient history! It is very useful to allow the students to keep an overview in their mind when we're talking about a specific historical event or person. My students have gotten so used to my poster that they for example say that Plato of course lived in the "yellow"; period, that Homer's texts are from the "blue" period and that the story of Theseus and the Minotaur is situated in the "pink" period. The file is large and detailed enough to print on an A1 format as a poster. I have a Dutch version available too.
