Product Description:

Many students learn just enough Latin to study English vocabulary; if your students are already studying Latin, why not use the Latin they're learning to beef up their English vocabulary at the same time? This book is designed as a supplement to students who are using Latina Christiana I, although it could be used (with a little more effort) with other Latin programs as well. Book of Roots focuses only on Latin words presented in Latina Christiana that have "significant derivations in English vocabulary", so not every Latin word from each LC lesson will be covered in Book of Roots. The lessons are designed to correlate with lessons in LC, and for the two programs to be used side-by-side. The book begins with an introduction, notes to the teacher, an index of Latin roots, a drill form, and an introduction to prefixes and suffixes. Lessons are made up of several pages, each of which focus on one Latin root. The Latin root is given in its complete form, with multiple forms for verbs and nouns. Each form of the root is defined, and its English derivative is given, along with the definition of the English derivative. Exercises ask students to use the English derivatives correctly in a fill-in-the-blank sentence, and grammar questions ask the meaning of prefixes, suffixes, and whole English words that contain Latin roots. In this manner, over 1500 English derivatives are covered all through Latin! This gives students an excellent vocabulary boost, and helps them remember both their Latin and English words better.

My children have all taken several years of Latin. However, they are sometimes wanting in applying the Latin words they know to English vocabulary. I have purchased this book to fill in this gap. We use it when there are breaks in their online English course. It's easy and interesting.
