English from the Roots Up is a great program.  However, for my visual-spatial learner, it’s a little on the colorless-side.  These cards are not meant to replace the originals.  I don’t include any information about whether it’s Latin or Greek, and I don’t have all the example words using the root.  These are just so that my daughter can practice her latin roots without me “flashcarding” her every day.  Get’s boring, no?

Things you need to know:

  • Click on each image to download.
  • The images are in order with the labels five pictures down.
  • Some images are repeated on purpose.

As you can see in the previous photo, I used the same image and definition twice.  That is because the child learns SONUS and PHONE the same week.  One in each language.

To use this material:

  1. Print out all images and labels above on cardstock and laminate.  (The last list below is a pronunciation guide and doesn’t need to be on cardstock)
  2. Cut cards apart, leaving the definitions attached to the pictures.
  3. Cut apart all of the root labels above.  
  4. Write the Latin root in sharpie on the back of the image/definition card.
  5. Write the definition in sharpie on the back of the label card. (Or just use the English from the Roots up Cards as your label cards)
I use the cards to do two basic learning activites.
WORK 1:  Turn all the image/definition cards and labels face up.  Have child attempt to match the root to the correct image.  To check his work, turn over the image card. The word on the back of the image card and the front of the label should match.
WORK 2:  Turn all the image/definition cards and labels face down.  Have the child attempt to match the root to the correct definition.  To check his work, turn over the label card to face up.  All the words should match.
