In the case of this series, the sum is definitely more than the total of its parts. As the most important Latin and Greek roots are studied, students increase their vocabularies far more than the 240 words actually presented, since these roots form the basis for many additional words. Roots are grouped thematically in worktexts, with each of the sixteen lessons in every book introducing up to 15 words derived from two or more classical roots. Each lesson begins with a "root dictionary". The root and root forms are shown and defined in bold type, followed by English word(s) derived from that root. Each English word is shown in dictionary format with pronunciation key, definition(s) and word forms each followed by a sentence showing correct word usage in context. Small side boxes list additional words that are formed from the same root. A variety of exercises based on synonyms, antonyms, analogies, vocabularies in context, and sentence completion are provided at the end of lessons to insure mastery. The many literary, historical and geographical references are designed to increase the student's cultural literacy. After every two lessons, a creative or expository writing assignment is suggested, using words from the lessons , allowing the student to put into practice the words he's learned.

Answers are available in the answer key, but if you want a little more help, opt for the Teacher Key. The Teacher Key is a valuable resource, as it complements, extends, and enriches the series. It provides tips for individual learning needs and shows how to ensure that students are building upon earlier skills. It gives support for every lesson, provides blackline masters to reinforce key words, gives additional review activities and vocabulary games, and includes a glossary and answer key for the student books.

A test booklet (with answers) is available. You get a lot of educational value for your money here. This series would be beneficial to parents too - especially those that didn't attend parochial school or study the classical languages!

I used this previously with another child and liked the presentation and breakdown of words, and the various methods of review, all contained in a handy workbook format.

A great way to learn Latin and Greek root words. My son loves this book.

I think this is an excellent program for learning how to decipher the meaning of words. Once you know the roots, you can figure out just about any word.

Same as above... recommended by homeschool mom, helped her child with SAT.
Chad W on Jun 7, 2016
This series is really set up for the student to master the roots; not just memorize vocab words. We've used Books 4-6 already. Including familiar words to help students learn the Latin/Greek roots is an effective memory jogger.
Akemi O on Jun 4, 2016
Concise lessons, how lessons are grouped, Cathy Duffy Review, wanted stand-alone Roots lessons (not tied to Latin course), ability to differentiate (easier + harder words options)
Kristin O on May 5, 2016
""Classical Roots has been a great tool in keeping Latin and Greek Roots in my children's minds. It has helped them with spelling and with being able to deduce the meaning of words.""
MaRhonda I on Apr 25, 2016
I wanted a vocabulary workbook that uses word roots. I think this is a better way to learn words. It seems a skill that could be useful in figuring out words.

I'm going to use this book for my 7th grader. Do I need to purchase the teacher's guide and answer key as well?
A shopper on Sep 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The teachers guide gives some helpful ideas and suggestions, but, in my opinion, it is designed to be used more in a class room setting opposed to an individual homeschool environment. However, with that being said all of the answers to the exercises can be found at the very back of the Teachers book and not in the students book. The teachers book also has the Lesson Key Word Activity Master for each lesson of which you would need to make a copy to give to your student. This is not in the students text, and in my opinion it is more like a lesson review or quiz to be given to the student. The answers for the Lesson Key Word Activity Master are also in the Teachers text. It really comes down to do you want to have the answers or are you willing to search for them in your students text. For me the Teacher text was disappointing, I would have rather had an answer key opposed to a book that I for the most part did not use. Ultimately, I did use the book, but only for the answers, as that was a time saver for me. I would recommend the test booklet that goes along with this since it applies practical application and use of these vocabulary words.

Do words from books 4,5,6 repeat in these more advanced levels?
A shopper on Apr 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There is surprisingly little duplication. For example, in Book A, there is one prefix from Book 6, six roots from Book 5, and none from Book 4.

I like this series of vocabulary books for my daughter because it explores root words and how to decipher unfamiliar words. We will be continuing to use this series until my daughter completes it.

Great vocabulary program with a classical influence
This is a great vocabulary program that draws the student's attention to the classical roots of familiar and less familiar vocabulary words. The focus is on classical roots, not on learning Latin or Greek.
