Etymology Worksheet/Guidance

Etymology Worksheet/Guidance

(0)
This worksheet was created to improve students' ability to deconstruct words to better their understanding. I have used this is a secondary school but the National Curriculum non-statutory spelling guidance suggest that the teaching of etymology should be included in primary school teaching. This sheet works well as a reference when glued in the books or put on the desks during comprehension or spelling tasks. When the size is increased it makes a good wall display. I have used this as a starter for lessons where the students need to deconstruct a key word to find its meaning. Works well whole school and across all subjects.
