More About Joegil K. Lundquist & Flash Cards
Joegil K. Lundquist served for many years as a second grade teacher in Seattle's Bush School. She noticed that her students were having a difficult time decoding large words. In the second half of the year she began teaching Greek and Latin root words--not the entire laguages. Her students kept boxes with one note card for each root word that they collected. Lundquist found that disruptive students changed theri behavior when they grasped the logic behind the derivation of English words. All students became more confident. One student, in the hospital for an operation, wrote back to class and decoded medical terminology he had heard.
Joegil K. Lundquist currently resides in Seattle Bellevue.
Reviews - What do customers think about English from the Roots Up Flashcards, Vol. 1?
Fun, Easy, and Effective Oct 5, 2008
I don't really use the cards right now. I modified the directions from the book, and we use whole pages for each root. We put the root, meaning, and a graphic that reminds us of the picture. With one visual spatial learner and two with dysgraphia, the modified version works better for us.
A clear easy to read copy for the teacher! Aug 8, 2008
We went through the 100 roots, learned them and made cards and I think making the cards is a big part of the learning process. I like to have a copy of these to use as flashcards for review. My only complaint would be, I wish they had included the pronunciation like they do in the book.
Middle School Teacher's Pick Aug 25, 2007
I immediately put these to use in my classroom. This will help my students not only develop their vocabulary in writing, but also be able to recognize roots that will help them decipher the meanings of words when they read. I have more confidence in teaching these vocabulary words than any other method of developing vocabulary I have tried. It just makes sense.
Buy the flash cards, not the book Jun 10, 2007
I purchased both the book and the flash cards. After reviewing both I kept the flash cards and returned the book.
The flash cards have everything you need, and they are ready to use. The flash cards include all forms of the greek or latin word on the front, and on the back they list many common English words based on the root.
The book requires that you make flash cards. The book also includes a few pages of background material, but not enough to make it worth the money. While the book has a lot of useful material, it is not as easy to use as the flash cards. The book would have just sat on the shelf -- the flash cards were put to use the day they arrived.
The flash cards are great and they are really the most helpful. Purchase the flash cards.
Proof that it Helps Feb 10, 2007
I used this book when my daughter was in her primary years. We played the games and created the cards. We formed Greek and Latin combination words as fun challenges. She was able to read Old English literature with ease. She soared through Biology because of her root word knowledge. She has thanked me several times over the years for this fantastic foundation. She is a successful college student and her ACT scores were fantastic.
