Print Recommendations: English/Language Arts

When we took Latin in high school (with superficial intentions of higher SAT scores and a field trip to Italy), we fell in love with Greek and Latin roots and word origins. Thanks to the Core Standards, our young learners are practicing these skills alongside decoding and vocabulary development. Add in deep reading and creative writing, we think you'll enjoy what we've put together for you here!
