Class Description

Using the curriculum “English from the Roots Up” as a guide, students will expand their grasp of the vocabulary used in literature, science, and standardized tests by learning Latin and Greek roots in an enjoyable and intuitive way. Students will also learn how to work with figurative language including simile, alliteration, and metaphor, as well as fun ways to use words such as malapropisms, Tom Swifties and limericks. We’ll play games, learn to collect words throughout everyday life, and by the end of the year, students will have grown in their knowledge of the English language with some fun along the way!
