We were given the opportunity by Timberdoodle to review Word Roots A2.  For purposes of this review, we used it with our ds14, 8th Grade.

Taken from the Timberdoodle website:

According to national standards, students in grades 4 –  12 must now be able to demonstrate their knowledge of how to use common Greek and Latin roots for analyzing the meaning of complex words.

Lovely! Isn’t this just what we needed, one more requirement from the government that our children will be tested for yearly? Yet surprisingly enough, it is one that makes sense. Children who have a solid grasp of word roots are bound to be children with better spelling and reading comprehension skills primarily because they have acquired the ability to decode words. But regardless of the benefit, you’re probably not looking for another task. In that case, assuming your children are independent learners, you will appreciate the Word Roots series. Written for grades four and up, Word Roots will teach your children the meanings of Latin and Greek prefixes, roots, and suffixes of words commonly used in English. A pre/post test, answers, and glossary are included. And with reproducible pages, the entire family can be prepared for any assessment tests their state throws at them.

Also taken directly from the website (because I just couldn’t word it any better!):

For each lesson students first learn the meanings of prefixes, roots, and suffixes. Then they

  • Divide known and unknown words into their elements or assemble elements to form whole words.
  • Match word parts or whole words to their definitions by analyzing their meanings.
  • Apply their new vocabulary in sentences.
  • We started Latina Christina 1  earlier this year and decided to take a break from it.  We were then asked if we would be interested in reviewing this product.  UH, YEA!  Isn’t the Lord’s timing AMAZING!  This has been EXCELLENT to go back to the very beginning and help understand more of what the Latin program has been talking about.  I am VERY EXCITED to see how ds14 has progressed and will progress after working thru Word Roots!  The next one we’ll get will B1 then B2…we’ll see where we go from there!
