Homeschool Teacher Review
Complex words, especially scientific terms, are created from Latin and Greek root words combined with small prefixes and suffixes. This book really helps a child see that there are consistent beginning, middle, and ending structures to words and can also help them understand when, how, and why our language came to be. There are 10 chapters, each containing 7-10 lessons. Each lessons teaches several root words pertaining to the chapter's overall theme. Various prefixes and suffixes are added throughout the lessons to introduce new words. Each word is broken down into the smallest possible sections and those sections are thoroughly explained. The chapters also include reviews at the end. This book will definitely help a child prep for more advanced language study, the SAT, or high school to college science courses.
