Hi Evita,elw322 wrote:I read that when you do English from the roots up that we will making some type of vocabulary cards. Before knowing any details as to how the program would be used, I was going to purchase the cards that are already pre made.
Would it be pointless to purchase these since the student will be making some anyways?? Would there be any other purpose to purchasing these? Are the pre-made cards have the exact same info your dc are writing down on their notebooks?
Thanks in advance :)
We never used the cards, because
* my ds needed to work with the words in several ways in order to retain them, and
* my older dd who used it in high school liked making the cards!
However, I have read of folks using EFRU in all different ways, including making a notebook or using the premade cards. Just be sure you work with the roots in several different ways each week. (The teacher manual gives you several ideas.)
