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!

It was the selected book for my child's class.

I liked Vocabulary Classical Roots C for my high-schooler and am starting my 7th grader on the series. The Teacher's guide seemed an unnecessary expense for my student working individually (and we were just fine without it last year), but I did want the answers to the exercises, so I am getting this just as I did before.

This series is recommended by the well trained mind. I like it for the kids after the Spelling Workout series. The Answer books help me keep on top of my marking!!!

Always buy the answer key. Saves stress later.

Well the price and needed for home schooling. I am the learning couch and to serve my son I need to create word sentence for him to learn his vocabulary. Which is very hard for me to.

Recommended by other homeschool moms for SAT prep for vocabulary... down the road in a few years.
Chad W on Jun 7, 2016
Well Trained Mind recommended... We've enjoyed the first levels and plan on continuing. Nice to have the answer key so that it's easier to check my daughter's work.

We completed English from the Roots Up this year and the Vocab books are a natural next step.

"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."

Will it just work to buy the answer key, or do I need the the teachers manual to have my child complete vocabulary from classical roots?
A shopper on Sep 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This is an excellent vocabulary course IMHO. I use just the answer key. I think the Teachers guide shows you how to implement the lessons? Not too sure as we have used the whole series for my eldest daughter, and I have not purchased one teachers guide. DS and younger DD are now working through it.

Too expensive for what it is
Yes, it gives the answers. So, in that sense, I guess I'm satisfied. But since it wasn't clear I needed it, I'm angered that I needed to complete a separate purchase. This is the cheapest, flimsiest thing - no reason it couldn't be included in/with the actual book - and so paying $4 plus shipping feels so wrong. I would have given fewer stars except Rainbow Resource at least gives a free sample, so work could continue while we waited for this to arrive. But the whole thing is a total rip-off.
