English from the Roots Up Vol. I Word Cards
The 100 Greek and Latin word root cards which you formerly had to construct yourself while using English From the Roots Up. Having no time is no longer an excuse for overlooking this wonderful vocabulary resource that won a 5-star award from Mary Pride!
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, su
We add 5 new cards each week and they get excited every single time. I show them the root word and they try to figure out what the meaning is based on words they know. We're already part way through Vol. 2.
The only downside to this set of cards is that they don't have the pronunciation on the back of each card like Vol. 2 does. We've had to use Google Translate to listen to the pronunciation for each word. Unfortunately, we had already gone through the entire Vol. 1 and it's been difficult for them to change the way they pronounce some of the words since they had already memorized them one way.
I recommend that the company add the pronunciation to Vol. 1 and I will definitely rebuy so that I can use them with my 5 year old when he's ready.
