Nota Benes sprinkled throughout the text enliven presentation and give interesting information on word history and additional derivations.

  Classical Roots, Grade 6
Carrie of Washington, 1/29/2011
This program is centered around Latin and Greek roots for common English words. The concept is great but each lesson contains so few words that I supplement them with additional words using the same root. In addition, there are so few activities with each lesson that my daughter can easily finish a lesson in about 15 minutes. I do add additional work to make a lesson stretch over the course of a week, but would like more activities for each set of words. This program starts with a great idea, and I really wish it worked for us, but the delivery is lacking. I'll be looking for a different program next year.
