Word Roots B2 – Schedule and Quizzes Added


03 Jun

The Critical Thinking Co. Word Roots B2

Well, we’ve reached the end of the year. Seventh grade is over. Now that it’s over I have completed the worksheets for certain books and curriculum, and have a little bit of time to add them here for you guys.

So, for now, I’ve added a page for The Critical Thinking Company’s Word Roots B2 book. It includes a basic schedule, as well as all the quizzes I made to go along with the pages of the book. They’re just basic Document files, nothing fancy, but it saves you from having to make them. Hopefully they’ll help someone out there.

Word Roots, Beginning, by The Critical Thinking Co.

When doing research regarding homeschooling, I came across a lot of parents and methods that suggested teaching Latin and/or Greek for various reasons. I took a lot of Spanish myself, and in this day and age, Spanish is something that could be very useful in everyday life, so that seemed the logical language to teach. Spanish would also be beneficial because I could talk in Spanish a bit and find ways to make it useful during our schooling. But then I wondered, Am I doing him a disservice by NOT teaching him Latin or Greek? I never learned it in school. I turned out okay (I think),  BUT my vocabulary isn’t what it could be I guess.
