We just completed English from the Roots Up Vol. 1. My daughter and I both enjoyed the ease of the format and the lessons are written in a way that she is able to complete them on her own. There is no preparation needed unless you feel it is necessary. We are looking forward to this next level.

Loved Volume 1! Looking forward to Volume 2! Simple, easy, fascinating.
EMILY R on Oct 2, 2018
Finished Volume I. Liked it. Ready for more roots.
Rebecca E on Jul 24, 2018
After completing Vol. 1 I wanted to continue exposing my students to Latin and Greek. I wasn't interested in an entire Latin/Greek curriculum.
Sandra W on Jul 19, 2018
A great way to learn Latin and Greek roots while also giving practice on identifying those roots in everyday used words.
Angie A on Jun 5, 2018
My daughter will be entering 5th grade next year. The school she will be attending will be introducing Latin. Just trying to get a head start on the vocabulary.
Amanda L on May 22, 2018
Concise, thorough curriculum.
Emily W on Apr 7, 2018
These were highly recommended by a fellow homeschool mom. I felt that teaching Greek and Latin meanings would enhance my son's ability to comprehend what he reads as well as properly use words based on context.
Tracy B on Feb 19, 2018
Excellent resource for teaching/learning Latin & Greek!
Maren P on Feb 6, 2018
SOOOO much more interesting than learning to "speak" Latin or Greek. This makes our everyday works make sense and ties them together. It's a lesson that all enjoy every week! I had kids make their own cards to reinforce learning and save money.

We finished volume one and are moving on to the next volume.

We loved book one and learned a lot
Pam N on Jun 21, 2017
We have done Volume 1 this year and the kids (11 & 7) really enjoyed it. They requested to keep going!
Shira A on Feb 28, 2017
I have used volume one and liked the ease of the lay out and that several examples with definitions are given for each root. I wanted to continue the lessons with the next book.

My daughter loves science. We are working on her being able to understand scientific terms by understanding the language they are made from.

How does this program work? I looked at the sample pages, but only see the root and word that use it with definitions. The description mentions activities and games, can someone please give me more information?
Lynn on Feb 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I use two really handy pages: Greek and Latin Notebooking pages by 4R Press that are specifically designed to go with this study. Also, there are Latin and Greek Word Study Pages by Notebooking Pages that are really helpful. Our son uses both pages per Greek or Latin root in the book. The wonderful way these two pages work together makes for a memorable study of each root all on their own! So he is independently studying the roots in this way.

When we finished English from the Roots Up Volume 1 we had difficulty locating Volume 2 However Rainbow Resource came to the rescue again! By spending less than 5 minutes per day even my 7 year old son has learned all of the roots in Volume 1 and is well into Volume 2 The flash cards are a nice addition and well worth the money My three children enjoying going through the whole stack as quickly as they can! When learning can be fun and easy why not? English from the Roots Up certainly makes the grade
