Here is the logical advancement from English from the Roots Up Vol 1. With 100 new roots being introduced, this book underscores the enabling value of understanding word origins. Because of its complexity, Vol II is best suited for grades 4 - 12.
About English From The Roots Up:
How did we teach our beginning readers Latin and Greek roots? Well, we knew we didn't want something too dull, too schoolish, too intense, or based too heavily on mythology. With those objectives clarified, it was not difficult to decide that
English from the Roots Up was an ideal program for us.
Designed by elementary school teacher Joegil Lundquist, this program teaches children 100 Greek and Latin words and their derivatives. Each child compiles his own file of 3" X 5" index cards with the root word on the front and the definitions and derivatives on the reverse. The teacher's manual not only includes the root word, derivatives, and sample words, but also lots of great ideas in the teaching notes.
This program could not be easier to implement and is ideal for multilevel teaching. If your children have had no exposure to Latin and Greek root study, you are going to be very impressed with the results. Appropriate for second grade through high-school. Card sets, for the harried mom, are available separately.
