    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. Its 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 Uncles 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.

    A creative, interactive, hands-on approach to vocabulary! What better way to retain the learning of new words? Using index cards, a file box, and a good dictionary, this approach is a welcome departure from the typical workbook fare. And, subtitled: Help for Reading, Writing, Spelling and S.A.T. Scores, its obvious from looking at this book that it would, indeed, do just that! How? By teaching the roots of the English language found in Greek and Latin. Since the majority of our words are rooted in these classical languages, mastering these roots is a key that will open the door to understanding a myriad of words! The creative activity suggestions in this book could become the basis for wonderful unit studies as well.

    Over 200 roots are presented in a series of 54 lessons. Each two-page lesson presents between two and five related roots (on average), along with their meanings and common words that use them. Then, ten vocabulary words are listed with part of speech, definition, and a sentence showing the word in context. The second page of the lesson is a student worksheet with a variety of exercises that give students practice defining and using the vocabulary words. Lesson by lesson notes are included for the teacher in the front of the book. These include suggestions for incorporating games and other extension activities (including reproducible student pages).

    If youre already doing Apologias 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 youre already doing Exploring Creation with Biology, why not link vocabulary study as well? - Jess

    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

    Subtitled "Mastering Vocabulary with Prefixes, Suffixes, and Root Words," that pretty much sums it up! Students will deepen their understanding of the English language and expand their vocabulary through forty-one lessons. Each lesson is formatted with either a prefix(es), suffix(es), or root word(s) complete with the meaning and some sample words. New words built around these concepts follow, with definitions of each and a sample sentence that uses the word in context. Students are then asked to complete a practice section. These exercises vary in construct, including fill-in-the-blank, matching, identifying synonyms and antonyms, identifying the best context for the word, and more. Following every second lesson is a review page that tests students on the concepts and words they learned in the previous two lessons. Very doable and user friendly. ~ Megan

    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 youll be learning as vocabulary roots as well, reinforcing the word meanings in both places! Of course, even if youre 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 words meaning in Latin and the words 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 teachers 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 youd prefer not to have your student fill out all of their own index cards, this set will do some of the work for them. It includes 123 cardstock cards, each with the word root printed in the upper left-hand corner, a list of related words beneath the root, and the reference from the book in the upper right-hand corner. Students will still need to supply the meanings to the cards and study them, but it saves them the time of creating all the cards for themselves.
