Tagged: Latin and Greek Roots
My plan was to purchase “Getting Started with Latin,” for my 7th grader, but I forgot that I have “English from the Roots Up” already on hand. I also have “Latina Christina,” but I like the way GSWL teaches and presents the material in a simplistic way. In the past, I’ve had a tendency to purchase curriculum and then not use it because it was either too time consuming or challenging to teach.
Is teaching “English from the Roots Up” enough to start off on vocabulary studies? I was then going to do the second volume in 8th grade and then start formal Latin in HS. My goal is for dd’s (my 5th grader also) to understand the English language and improve their vocabulary. They are always asking, “what does this word mean” so I would like to help them improve their skills.
Thanks & God bless!CindySParticipant
I hope it’s enough because that is exactly what we’re doing! I’ve had some false starts with EFTRU but will try it once again. It’s not the curriculum – it’s me . Also Rummy Roots is in my closet and I’m going to get that out. I looked at the Getting Started and liked it as well, but thought, like you did, to start it in a year or two and use what I have (stewardship!!).
Thanks Cindy! Along with trying to use what I have, I’ve also been trying to purge what I don’t use and make sure everything I have fits our philosophy of education. If it doesn’t, then it needs to go. It makes life easier when the temptation of trying to use everything I have and then end up using everything ineffectively. I hope that makes sense.
I’m wanting to buy Prima Latina…do you guys use that or have that to sell?
