Etymology Word Study BUNDLE I: Greek & Latin Roots -cent, -ject, -port, -graph
ROOKIE Montessori-inspired Spelling & Vocabulary help (16 help pages +key):
What is etymology? Etymologies are not definitions but rather explanations of what our words meant and how they might have sounded many years ago. This bundle includes 4 different root words: cent, ject, port and Greek graph. Learn about each word family's history and meaning. What words belong in this word family based on the root? Seven words among them have been chosen to help explore affixes, spelling & syllables, determine parts of speech and to match vocabulary.
Explore the inner workings and nuances of modern English.
This learning resource guides young grammarians to:
• Review the Montessori approach to spelling and vocabulary development
• Analyze seven words within a word family related by its root word
• Practice matching these words to their dictionary definitions

In the words of Dr. Montessori, "Follow the Child!"
Dr. Maria Montessori believed the only way our world would find lasting peace was through educating our children. Much of her elementary curriculum was written by her during a period of internment in India during WWII. This time period helped solidify Dr. Montessori’s belief in Peace Education.
