Do you have some examples and ideas for teaching...?
The children (both 9) and I are about to start learning latin and greek roots. I am beginning with explaining: definition, derivation, and metaphor.
They obviously encounter these things every day and I want to start pointing that out. For example, the week we are focusing on derivation, we will be baking bread (it being a derivation of flour, salt, yeast, water, etc…).
What would be your suggestions?
