Level I Vocabulary for Michael Clay Thompson's Language Arts Curriculum

Building Language provides an introduction to Latin stems as the bases for much of the English and Spanish languages. Using the analogy of the arch in architecture, the book explores the Roman roots of our buildings and of our language. Ten lessons introduce important Latin stems, providing an intellectual key for young students to understand that big words aren't necessarily hard. It rejects the specious confines of teaching age-graded vocabulary.
This is the vocabulary precursor to Caesar's English I and II.
