Product Description:

If you are planning on doing Latina Christiana I with your children this coming year, here is a great opportunity to study the Latin words you'll be learning as vocabulary roots as well, reinforcing the word meanings in both places! Of course, even if you're not studying Latin concurrently, this book offers a strong root-based vocabulary course that examines Latin roots and some Greek roots as well. Each lesson presents a group of roots, prefixes, and suffixes to learn which correspond to the order of lessons in Latina Christiana I. Roots, prefixes and suffixes are introduced with their meanings, and are also clearly labeled with an "R", "P" or "S." Words that contain these parts are listed below in shaded boxes, and meanings are also provided for these words along with additional explanation or notes that are helpful. After the meaning has been given, a sentence with a blank is provided where the student can see how the word is used in context. Some lessons also contain a continuation of a story with blanks here and there, where students must supply the appropriate root-based word they have studied to complete the story. There are challenging review quizzes at the end of every lesson, which test students' knowledge of definitions, prefix meanings, suffix meanings, root meanings, and even the differences between a word's meaning in Latin and the word's meaning in English! Context Quizzes are also provided periodically, where students fill in the blanks in sentences by using words from the word bank above, gathered from several different lessons. There is no separate teacher's guide, so occasionally, teacher notes are referenced in the margins and explained at the end of the lesson. Complete answer keys are provided at the end of the book, along with alphabetical lists of all words introduced, words by prefix, words by suffix, root words, prefixes and suffixes all indexed by lesson number. With no fancy layout or graphics and a rigorous examination of roots, prefixes and suffixes, this a solid choice for root-based vocabulary study. 192 pgs, pb. Jess

I chose this book because I feel it can benefit me as an individual and as an adult educating two young children. Everyone knows that the more you know without reference is easier to teach than someone reading a script and losing everyone's attention because they're too busy noticing you're reading the script. I wish to know more about the English language to help my young children learn to read without frustration, but excitement. Any tool that I can find to help me do that is worth exploring.

Does this correlate to the "new" CL1 or the older version?
A shopper on Dec 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Roots of English has not (yet) been updated. It was designed to coordinate with the 3rd edition of Latina Christian 1. It can still be used with the new 4th edition but will not line up lesson by lesson.
