  1. English from the Roots Up Review by Melissa baileys
    Pros: Good for learning basic roots. We did volume 1 and purchased volume 2 but it seems to jump in difficulty so will wait a few years to do that.
    Cons: None

    Grades Used: 2-4 could be used for higher grades and just made more challenging

    Good for learning roots. I did not have my children make their own flash cards as the curriculum suggests. My kids would not have enjoyed it as much. We purchased flash cards and just enjoyed memorizing the roots then learning words that use those roots both on the back of the card and in every day life. We first learned Greek then Latin. The book mixes the two.
