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.

Our English From The Roots Up Schedule

The roots are broken down into 35 weeks with the last two weeks being for study and review of all 100 roots.

It also shows when I schedule in tests.

 

English From The Roots Up Flashcards Vol 1 This includes flashcards of the root and definition that can be used in various games. I included some games to get you started.

Enjoy!

    HI. We are first time users of EUR. Do they copy the derivatives on the lines provided and the extra lines are if they come with their own derivative?
    Thank you for putting this out there to share with all.

      The student copies the derivatives on the left and the definition on the right. Yes, the extra lines (I also added an extra page if needed) are for any other derivatives they can think of or that you want them to know.

    Thank you so much for putting all of this together and sharing it. I have had ERU for several years but haven’t used it much because I didn’t feel I could make it interesting enough to get through the year. Now I’m certain that my kids will be interested AND they will never know that by learning all these roots and their meanings they are really getting prepared for HS testing 😊

      Hi C.Hellner. A reader, Teresa, created test 7A because I did not have an individual test for words 85-100. I lumped them in with the final test and she wanted a separate test for them. So, she made it and kindly shared it. 🙂

    This is so awesome! Thank you for taking the time to do this! We have been HSing for the last 3 years, we do 50 words/year. But I have been wanting to do additional things with these books. It was always kind of dreaded to take out our cards to make a new flashcard each day. But now it won't be so boring! Thanks for the ideas and tests!

      It is my pleasure Lesley! It is always great knowing that others find them useful. Makes all the work put into making them worth it. 🙂
