Roots of Numbers Word Wall Freebie

Here's a new freebie for teaching numeric roots. I like to use these for pre-reading. I use them to introduce students to the numeric roots they will be encountering in the upcoming reading. Another way to do it is to assign a student to be a "counter." Whenever one of these roots is found in the reding, they take out the card and put it in the pocket chart so we can talk about it afterward. Great for English learners and struggling readers. Each card has the root, the English meaning, a picture to represent the meaning of the root, and the origin (Greek or Latin)
