    Frank Smith once said, "One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way." Norma Fifer and Nancy Flowers series Vocabulary from the Classical Roots is designed to introduce students to languages of Greek and Latin. In the words of the authors, "Vocabulary from the Classical Roots encourages you to look at words as members of families in the way astronomers see stars as part of constellations. Here you will become acquainted with constellations of words descended from Greek and Latin, visible in families that cluster around such subjects as the human being, kinds of mental activities and aspects of daily life."

    Vocabulary from the Classical Roots Level A is comprised of the following components:

    While my son was enrolled in a public online school this book was intended to be his 6th grade vocab book. We quickly discovered it was too complex for him to use.

    At a glance we really thought it would be good, and fun to learn all the root meanings. The problem for us was the fact that my son struggles with comprehension and it was too confusing. The lessons teach the root from Greek or Latin, and then also includes the meaning for each vocabulary word. Unlike other vocabulary workbooks, this introduced way too many new words for him. The fact that he could not use many of the words in every day conversations, or find them in what he was reading, it was too foreign to him.

    I have a younger son who is much more scholarly and will likely enjoy using this book.

    So I gave it a 4 based on it is an okay book and for the right student it would be great. For us it wasn't great.

    We ended up using Wordly Wise, which we have been very pleased with.

    My suggestion would be to spend a full 5 days working on each of the 16 lessons. We made flash cards and played games to enhance the experience. No test/quizzes included in this book. No additional teacher guide in this book.

    An basic understanding of Greek and Latin before the high school years should make biology a bit easier for my kids. It will also help them on the SAT. I am pleasantly surprised; they really enjoy learning these new words.

    The lessons are well laid out and the roots are pertinent to every day words. I was expecting something antiquated, but this is really a fantastic step after a regular spelling program. My daughter is enjoying it as well and recognizing roots in much of her reading.
