Now I'm sure the authors of the book would sit me down and lecture me about the Greek meaning of "mycros" and language evolution and blah blah blah (for the record, I have a Master's degree in Linguistics, and I just "yadda yadda yadda'd" my way through thousands of years of language evolution). But if it's true that on some historic level micro and tele are roots and not prefixes, well that means they chose the wrong example for their book.
When you get to the subsequent lessons, they are not like this. They are logical and clear and there is no confusion. I have no idea why the first page is so odd.
The lessons are extremely short. There are only a few questions for each root word which at this age is really basic. There should be more practice to go along with the lessons. I can however, easily search the web and my paid worksheet sites and see if I can find more items to go with each lesson.
The little charts that show the prefix, root, or suffix and then the meaning is easy to understand and use. It other gives a basis for a child to learn more. The book is basic black and white. I would like to see the charts in color so they stand out more. There is an answer key for the lessons at the end of the book for easy reference. The book is meant to be both the student and teacher copy which is the type of book I prefer as buying two books can be costly.
