    If you are planning on doing Latina Christiana I with your children this coming year, here is a great opportunity to study the Latin words you'll be learning as vocabulary roots as well, reinforcing the word meanings in both places! Of course, even if you're not studying Latin concurrently, this book offers a strong root-based vocabulary course that examines Latin roots and some Greek roots as well. Each lesson presents a group of roots, prefixes, and suffixes to learn which correspond to the order of lessons in Latina Christiana I. Roots, prefixes and suffixes are introduced with their meanings, and are also clearly labeled with an "R", "P" or "S." Words that contain these parts are listed below in shaded boxes, and meanings are also provided for these words along with additional explanation or notes that are helpful. After the meaning has been given, a sentence with a blank is provided where the student can see how the word is used in context. Some lessons also contain a continuation of a story with blanks here and there, where students must supply the appropriate root-based word they have studied to complete the story. There are challenging review quizzes at the end of every lesson, which test students' knowledge of definitions, prefix meanings, suffix meanings, root meanings, and even the differences between a word's meaning in Latin and the word's meaning in English! Context Quizzes are also provided periodically, where students fill in the blanks in sentences by using words from the word bank above, gathered from several different lessons. There is no separate teacher's guide, so occasionally, teacher notes are referenced in the margins and explained at the end of the lesson. Complete answer keys are provided at the end of the book, along with alphabetical lists of all words introduced, words by prefix, words by suffix, root words, prefixes and suffixes all indexed by lesson number. With no fancy layout or graphics and a rigorous examination of roots, prefixes and suffixes, this a solid choice for root-based vocabulary study. 192 pgs, pb. – Jess

    If you're already doing Apologia's Exploring Creation with Biology, did you know that you are all set up for seamlessly tying in this course with Science Roots to learn 123 life science roots. Science Roots is set up in much the same way that Vocabulary Vine is (please see our Spelling/Vocabulary section for complete description), where the student is given a main list of roots, and they make a study card for the root, including a root definition, example words and their definitions, and the source language (Greek or Latin). The roots are arranged in the order they are encountered in Exploring Creation with Biology, so vocabulary study can be tied in chapter by chapter. The study would also work for any other biology text, but the coordination would not be as good. The author recommends this vocabulary study as a two-year plan, ideally started before Exploring Creation with Biology. In this case, the student would study 63 roots of more general science terms the first year, and 60 roots of more specifically life-science terms the second year. Detailed instructions and implementation are offered to get you up and running, along with frequently asked questions and some suggested learning games using the vocabulary roots. The appendix contains a taxonomy chart, a complete vocabulary list, and vocabulary lists for following either the one-year or two-year plan. If you're already doing Exploring Creation with Biology, why not link vocabulary study as well? - Jess

    Introducing our children to word roots may be one of the greatest tools for success we can give to them. Research suggests that knowing word roots leads to greater success in reading comprehension, vocabulary usage and spelling, all of which may help children succeed with communication skills and in standardized testing. This easy to use packet introduces, reinforces and provides practice with forty key root words. There are eight units (called packets) with five activities per packet. Activities are varied and include cross-word puzzles, word searches, and fill in the blank exercises. Additional review games and word cards provide a fun, hands-on way to solidify learning the word roots. Answer key in back. Reproducible, pb, 64 pages. ~ Deanne

    Just as words are broken up phonetically in order to pronounce them, they can be broken into pieces to reveal the meaning of the word. Knowing word roots is an important part of literacy. Each lesson holds four pages which teach a set of roots. The first page is a word list for the student to read and study the words and their definitions. The second page holds a vocabulary sort which involves matching all of the words with their definitions. The next page is a group activity, read-around review, but it can be performed by one student as well. In this activity each word is on a card, along with a clue as to which word comes next. After the clue is read, the person holding the word card that is the answer reads their clue, and so on until all of the words have been identified. The last page of each lesson contains a vocabulary quiz. After every two lessons a review test ensures the roots are remembered. 144 pages. ~ Steph

    Many students learn just enough Latin to study English vocabulary; if your students are already studying Latin, why not use the Latin they're learning to beef up their English vocabulary at the same time? This book is designed as a supplement to students who are using Latina Christiana I, although it could be used (with a little more effort) with other Latin programs as well. Book of Roots focuses only on Latin words presented in Latina Christiana that have "significant derivations in English vocabulary", so not every Latin word from each LC lesson will be covered in Book of Roots. The lessons are designed to correlate with lessons in LC, and for the two programs to be used side-by-side. The book begins with an introduction, notes to the teacher, an index of Latin roots, a drill form, and an introduction to prefixes and suffixes. Lessons are made up of several pages, each of which focus on one Latin root. The Latin root is given in its complete form, with multiple forms for verbs and nouns. Each form of the root is defined, and its English derivative is given, along with the definition of the English derivative. Exercises ask students to use the English derivatives correctly in a fill-in-the-blank sentence, and grammar questions ask the meaning of prefixes, suffixes, and whole English words that contain Latin roots. In this manner, over 1500 English derivatives are covered – all through Latin! This gives students an excellent vocabulary boost, and helps them remember both their Latin and English words better.

    Egghead’s Guide to Vocabulary (7-AD)

      In this one-book approach to vocabulary, there are 3 tiers of difficulty (100, 200 & 300 level words.) The first tier words are fairly common, but still very useful. For each word, you have a definition in language that students can understand and an example of it being used in 1-2 sentences. The sentences have some sort of story/situation to make the word more memorable. The Egghead character is there to point some helpful things (and sometimes just add levity) like the phonetic spelling of the word using the IPA or International Phonetic Alphabet. However, with more difficult words, there are not as many phonetic pronunciations. I recommend you check into the proper pronunciations with unfamiliar words. After a dozen or so words is an exercise – matching, grouping, fill in the blank, reading comprehension w/multiple choice, etc. The level 200 words are less likely to be familiar to students, but are fantastic words to master and use in their speaking and writing. Level 300 words are specifically for SAT or ACT test preparation where you will have to read and decipher meanings and write an impressive essay. There is the same format for all 3 levels, but again, little to no phonetic help at the harder levels. In the back of the book are some helpful resources including lists of prefixes/roots/suffixes and their meanings; 2 longer fill-in-the-blank quizzes; and answers to all exercises. 8x10”, 235pp, Sc. ~ Sara
