    So, you could pick up a deck of cards or start through an endless series of workbooks in your quest to become educated about Greek and Latin roots. Alternatively, you could thoroughly enjoy an entertaining DVD backed by online access to flashcards, quizzes and games that test your abilities to retain, recognize, match, listen, spell, and type word roots! Dwane Thomas (Visual Latin) hosts this engaging DVD series, each of which includes 10 lessons (15-18 minutes in length) that explore a total of 20 Latin and Greek roots. 10 or so English words derived from each root means over 200 English words are explained. Honestly, this doesn't even feel like learning! The lessons are to the point – and fun to watch. And the additional activities and games online can quickly become competitive – child vs. child or child vs. parent (don't be too sure of yourself mom or dad: you may think you're out of the age bracket for this course, but I guarantee a challenge!) The online component is very easy to use (I was able to start working on the lesson 1 quiz and games within seconds of going to the website). You can even create an account (or multiple accounts) and then your game scores are ranked against other Wordup! users. Simple, effective and a great value. – Zach

    Whenever you feel the urge (or need) to run through a few Latin declensions, now you'll have no excuse. This CD/DVD set provides just the right sort of "help." Cheryl Lowe (Memoria Press' veteran Latin author and instructor) leads the recitations for declensions, conjugations, adjectives, and adverbs – or, in other words, all Latin grammar forms. Use this CD in the car or at home. The DVD has a power-point type listing of the recitations and might help keep your visual learners oriented. Forms come up in columns and, as they're recited, the accented syllable is changed from red to blue type. This useful set could be used with any Latin program, not just the ones from Memoria Press, and the coverage is so broad, it will last through all the years of Latin study.

    Teaching language arts has never been so fun and easy! Watch your student’s eyes light up with understanding… English does make sense. With The Phonics Road, your student will learn to spell and write as well as they read.

    Combining seven (7) language arts skills in one program?! YES!

    Complete video teacher training through every word, rule, and lesson? YES!

    Everything you need already included? YES!

    Easy to learn/Easy to teach? YES!!

    Something for every student’s learning style? YES!

    Extra help and resources for our teachers? YES!

    Help stop/reverse Dyslexia? YES!

    Homeschool Friendly? YES!

    Charter/Flex School Friendly? YES!

    School Friendly? YES!

    There are four levels in The Phonics Road system. Each new level builds upon the skills learned in previous levels. This allows students starting with any skill level to become great spellers, writers and readers – FAST!

    This method creates greater results, in a shorter time span and with less homework.

    The Phonics Road Level Four is designed to follow Level Three. This level completes the skills your students have been building in The Phonics Road and includes all 7 language arts skills: Spelling, Handwriting, Reading, English Grammar, Composition, and Literature Studies with an Introduction to Latin while incorporating Music, Art, and History. As the teacher, you are guided step by step in how to finish teaching all these skills seamlessly, with ease and confidence.

    In Level Four, we have produced and provide twenty-two (22) hours of explicit teacher training via our video/text. This is the core of the curriculum and allows even a new teacher to begin teaching this method and level with very little preparation time needed. You also receive the physical pieces for both teacher and student. This includes the Teacher’s Blueprint Manual, with Literature Study Guide, and the Student Workbook, Student Literature Study and the book Carry On, Mr. Bowditch, by Jean Lee Latham.

    It’s still as easy as 1-2-3…

    • 1) The Teacher watches the video/text for the week’s lesson (averages about 30-45 minutes per week) …
    • 2) …and using the completed Teachers Blueprints provided, takes any notes needed for that day.
    • 3) Follow exactly what was modeled on the video and begin with your students.

    The magic of this method continues through the interaction between teacher and students, building advanced reasoning and thinking skills. Each student will continue to learn with their natural learning-style (visual, auditory, kinesthetic) while mastering the others. This continues to create success for both the teacher and the students!

    “I wish Barbara had been my grammar teacher. I feel like I'm learning alongside my student. There are many things in The Phonics Road programs that were never explained to me as a student.” – Emma M.

    “Even with my PhD, I realized just looking at the knowledge I have gained, and the ability to read, decode, spell, and memory my students have gained, this program is without peers when it comes to English Language Arts for the Elementary age.” - Phil D.

    In all my years of playing music, I have yet to pick up drums. However, after examining this course, I feel fairly certain that someone who sticks with this program would definitely be able to teach themselves (I learned a few things myself!). The modern drum kit is a rather daunting instrument, from the different sizes and shapes to tuning methods, to even how to hold a drumstick. However, if a student is willing to face that steep learning curve, this would be a great way to learn.

    A CD and a DVD accompany the book. The DVD is extremely detailed and walks you through almost every step of the book, making it a great visual education for the “learn-by-seeing” types. It’s like having a drum teacher right there with you! The book will teach you how to read all the included drum sheet music, starting with the most basic beats on one drum, all the way until you can play the entire kit in a variety of styles including rock, jazz, funk, country, metal, Latin, and more. I really enjoyed that the practice songs in the latter half of the book which sounded like some of the rock classics you might hear on the oldies station. These songs are beneficial because students can see how the techniques they have learned are actually music rather than just endless drills in a book. A fact which can be very frustrating for an older student or avid music fan. While younger students may need parent assistance, this surprisingly complete program is great for older students and adults alike. 92 softcover pages. – Laura

    When a title says it all, it's hard to know where to start. Classical Phonics is an integral part of the Memoria Press (i.e. Highlands Latin School) approach to reading. Both an underlying foundation to First Start Reading and a comprehensive "next step," this little book puts a complete series of phonics instruction in the hands of your child. Both the student and the teacher have the advantage of seeing the whole scope of phonics as well as each part in its relation to the whole. And it's all in one small, well-organized, attractive, concise book – a thorough update of a pint-sized, turn-of-the-(20th)-century gem, Word Mastery, by Florence Akin.

    Memoria Press has been an important publisher in the homeschool community for more than a decade. What Memoria publishes has first been child and teacher tested at Highlands Latin School in Louisville, Kentucky. It must be an amazing testing lab, because Memoria products are known for being user-friendly, effective, visually appealing, and strong academically. In other words, you can trust these guys.

    The first section of Classical Phonics has been incorporated into the First Start Reading program. As each FSR workbook is completed (and put away), Classical Phonics provides the word lists for continuing practice. In this way the student can compare new words to old ones, and since CP is a compendium of all of the phonics that a child learns in K-2, it is a handy little review book which could be used with any phonics program. While it is not a complete language program (there's no sentences – only words – for reading and no printing practice), a resourceful mom could add those elements, and I think we can expect Memoria to provide sequel products as well.

    Classical Phonics has ten units in two parts. Part One starts with the alphabet and CVC words in word families, then covers silent e words, plurals, possessives, CVCC words, double consonants, final consonant blends, consonant teams (ch, sh, th, wh), initial consonant blends (s, r, l), consonant blends (sw, tw, qu, squ), final consonant teams (ng, nk), three sounds of y, long vowel teams (ai, ay, ea, ee, oa), and long l and o in CVCC words. Part Two continues with soft c and g, more long vowel teams, vowel teams (oi, ou, oo, o), r-controlled vowels, more short vowel sounds, silent letters, suffixes, more plurals, (er, en, el), unusual spellings, common prefixes, words accented on last syllable, and ends with a list of sight words. At the end of the book is a short but insightful section on Suggestions to Teachers which carry the admonishment "do not put this book into the hands of your pupils until you have carefully studied these suggestions." Developed by the original author, this section presents a simple four part plan for teaching phonics – ear training, tongue training, eye training, and word building. 126 pgs, pb. ~ Janice

    As you might have already guessed from the evocative title, this is a vocabulary book centered on Greek and Latin root words. There are 36 units that can be used one per week or in concentration. It's a fun, interactive type of book and a good precursor to the more studious Vocabulary from Classical Roots series. Master word lists, along with their roots, are provided up front as a handy reference and summary. It includes several ideas for activities for each study. Every unit contains three reproducible pages for the student, introducing ten vocabulary words and tracing their definitions back to a common meaning. The pages are graphically stimulating and motivating to complete, rather than a dry, fill-in-the-blank presentation. I especially like the little symbol on the upper right-hand corner of each student page which gives a visual reminder of the root from which all these words spring. As an example, the first root studied is the Latin "foli," meaning "leaf." After students match the definitions to words printed on an assortment of leaf shapes, they make up sentences for each and, optionally, with string, tape, and a twig, make a foli mobile. The second student page for this unit is entitled "Comic Re-Leaf." It has a circle of cartoon visuals depicting the meaning of each vocabulary word with little pictures, characters, and word bubbles. In the center are the ten vocabulary words to write on each. For reinforcement, students then turn their paper over and write the definitions for the ten words from memory. The last page "Turn Over a New Leaf" presents news headlines incorporating the vocabulary words. Students have to write the first sentence of each news story, defining the vocabulary words. For example, the first sentence of a story for the headline "Unicorn Uncovers Unusual Unifoliate Under Uncle's Umbrella" might read, "Yesterday, a young unicorn playing in the park moved the umbrella of a family member only to find a rare species of plant having only one leaf." After this, the student is told to choose one of the headlines and illustrate it. This approach to learning vocabulary has something to offer for all learning styles, including the hands-on learner.
