Need a Greek and Latin Root Words Anchor Chart?

Whether you have high readers or low readers, vocabulary instruction is a critical component in any balanced literacy program. In higher year levels, this transitions into intensive word study and integration of Greek and Latin root words. As students learn vocabulary words and begin to build their own vocabularies, they need somewhere to turn for additional practice. Simply use these posters as a reference point during future vocabulary and word study lessons.

This set of 24 posters serves as an excellent display for studying roots. Each poster has its root, its meaning, and a real-world picture representation to aid in understanding. 

Greek and Latin Roots List

The following Greek and Latin roots are included in the poster selection:

  • port
  • phobia
  • geo
  • photo
  • spec
  • rupt
  • graph
  • ject

  • scope
  • scrib
  • man
  • chron
  • fract
  • opt
  • ped/pod

How to Make the Most of Your Latin and Greek Roots Posters

  1. Print the poster on letter paper and display it in your classroom for students to reference when doing independent work.
  2. Print the poster on letter-size paper, slip it into a clear sleeve, and use it in your guided groups as a reminder.
  3. Set your printer to print the posters 6-to-a-page. Print them and give them to students to insert into their interactive notebooks or homework folders for reference.

We’ve also come up with bonus ways to turn posters into interactive tools that really make your lessons stick!

📝 Create a fill-in-the-blank worksheet by removing selections of text.  

📂 Place copies in students’ homework folders for reference. 

💻 Provide posters as digital resources for virtual students. 

🧠 Test students’ memories by showing them the poster, then hiding it and having them tell you what they remember.

✅ Incorporate posters into your lesson wrap-up: students write on a sticky note what they learned from the lesson and place it on the poster.
