If your student thinks a “diphthong” is an article of clothing and “silent letters” are text messages, it’s time to learn about etymology!
The ACE Etymology Curriculum from Accelerated Christian Education has Scripture as its foundation, fully integrating biblical principles, wisdom, and character-building concepts into education. Students move at their own speed through the self-instructional “PACE” workbooks. Quizzes and tests are included.
The ACE Etymology Curriculum includes twelve 9th grade Etymology PACEs (1097-1108). Answer keys sold separately.
In these PACEs, your student will:
- Identify root words and write their meanings
- The Latin and Greek origins and the history of the English language
- Review the word study of homonyms, synonyms, and antonyms
- Expand on the functions of suffixes
- Review phonics rules: special sounds, silent letters, digraphs, and diphthongs
- Develop grammar comprehension: parts of speech and their functions
- Build on the character trait examples
In Etymology Unit 11 (PACE 1107), students will:
- Understand the word etymologies
- Practice forming the plurals of nouns
- Spell words that come from the root “miss,” “mit,” and “mess”
- Learn the meanings of “vise,” “vey,” “sign,” “miss,” “mit,” and “mess”
- Learn the character trait of commitment
