English From The Roots Up

After having my website hacked and moving to a new server, I am happy to say that the ERU page is now up again. 🙂 I am having to re-upload all my downloads, so I decided to zip each volume up to save me time. 🙂 Each zip file contains:  The schedule, the flashcards, and the tests with answers.

FYI: The rest of the website will be updated slowly starting with my most popular downloads. Thank you for your patience. 🙂


English from the Roots Up, Volume 1
This year, 2011-2012, the kids will finish up English From The Roots Up. They began it last year, and then I switched to the RC vocabulary and we started to do Prima Latina. Well, we didn't finish the latin and I thought why not just learn latin roots instead of the whole language. So, long story short, I am having them put the RC vocabulary aside and focus on Latin and Greek roots.

I made some notebooking pages last year for them to use, so they will continue with that. They are below and can be used with either volume of English From the Roots Up.

ERU Volume 1 and 2 on Quizlet

Teresa so kindly shared her hard work of inputting these into Quizlet.

Here is her note: I’d also like to share something with everyone that might help along the way. I set up flash cards online so that my kids could study, play games, and take practice tests. You could find them at http://www.quizlet.com Look up my user name, “whatagig.” I made sets for all the ERU Volume 1 Latin and Greek roots. You’ll see that there are 8 sets, 12 roots per set for the first seven and 16 roots for the eighth. It’s easy to understand once you take a look at it. (I just started Volume 2, so it’s incomplete so far. I’ll hopefully get it done soon.)

Quizlet is free. You could make an account of your own and then copy my sets onto your own profile. After you acquire the sets, you could place them in folders according to Cynthia’s test schedule. This makes studying for her tests even easier.

    Dearest Cynthia,
    Every time I think about the ERU cards & tests you created I want to cry for joy (I'm not exaggerating). This is the kind of thing I love to do but homeschooling 7 children can be overwhelming (so that kind of stuff NEVER gets done). It was very thoughtful of you to create a set for study/play because I would not want to wear the cards I purchased. My children use the original cards to copy from as well. Thank you for making it available for free. I would also like to thank the others that contributed.
    I often reflect on the bible story of the ten lepers. I am amazed that out of 10 that received victory and healing for their malady only one returned to express his thanks. I am sure there are countless others who are grateful for the service you have provided. It has been almost a year since I found your site and began using you materials. Of course what you have done does not compare to the is not life-changing healing of the lepers, but the principal still stands...a thank you is in order. I think of you often and wanted to be in the company of the one leper. THANK YOU!
    May God Richly Bless You!
    Sandra Jones

      Sandra, thank you! That is one of the nicest comments I have received to date. Thanks so much for taking the time to come back and let me know. It is so wonderful to know that something I created years ago is still blessing others today. It is truly a pleasure. 😀

    Wow! What a treasure trove! Thank you so much for sharing these wonderful printables! I was trying to figure out a way to set up ERU for my daughter to study independently and you have saved me SO much time. Thank you for your generous gift!
