English Derivative Difference

For every set of Latin vocabulary, there are 4-6 pages of “Word Power” activities which grow the student’s English vocabulary. These activities focus on teaching student the meaning of English words that are derived from Latin. An English derivative is a word that shares some of the meaning and some of the spelling of the Latin root word.

While many Latin curricula merely supply a list of English derivatives, LivelyLatin provides abundant activities for students to become more articulate and attentive to meaning in their own language.
As you can see, LivelyLatin Word Power exercises are varied, colorful, interesting, and inviting…

…And all increase your student’s word power!

To see actual samples of Word Power exercises, tour the BigBooks.
