Into the Ice: Take II
Due the holiday hullabaloo, we are going to extend Into the Ice for yet another week. Just the same, we will continue the Greek roots spelling study as well. We didn't even get around to testing on the crazy busy Friday, the day before break.
Spelling: Greek Roots
The Greek word part hydro means “water,” onym means “name,” arch means “primitive” or “ancient,” chronos means “time,” and crat means “rule.”
This spelling generalization meets the following Indiana Academic Standard:
"Use common, grade-appropriate Greek or Latin affixes and roots as clues to the meaning of a word (e.g., audience, auditory, audible). "
Share the Love
Enjoying a little food, fun, and friendship on the Friday before the holiday break
Like peas in a pod.
Who Would've Guessed?...
...even a visit from St. Nick himself during the Fun Friday festivities
