Learn the Greek alphabet and pronunciation system in a simple yet comprehensive way.
Features of this book:
This workbook is laid out in two-page spreads. Most lessons have only one two-page spread. Young students may do up to one spread per day. Older or more ambitious students may do two or more spreads per day.
Though the lessons in this copybook can be used without any accompanying text, they are designed to correspond with the more extensive textbook, A Greek Alphabetarion. A younger student could first learn the basics by going through the Hupogrammon, then review the same material more carefully and extensively by going through the Alphabetarion. An older student might use both books together. In this case, we suggest that the student first read the appropriate section of the Alphabetarion (and listen to the corresponding audio track on the compact disk), then do the exercises in the Hupogrammon.

That Baby Block design is great! I always love covers that bridge from front to back. Very visually appealing design and good use of color. Also, the content looks very engaging! Looks like the Bluedorns will hit another homer with this one! Greek is another one of the subjects (like my own little program) that needs to be rediscovered by homeschoolers, as part of "rebuilding the ruins." May God bless your efforts.

Designed to correspond with "A Greek Alphabetarion," A Greek Hupogrammon: A Beginner's Copybook for the Greek Alphabet with Pronunciations is a self-instructional, consumable workbook for anyone age 8 to adult who is beginning studies in reading, writing, and speaking the Greek language. Pages include sections for copying letters of the Greek alphabet, vowel combinations, and simple phrases, as well as a variety of exercises in different formats with answers. The large type size makes all the exercises, pronunciation tips, and examples easy to read, follow, and copy. An excellent resource for novice students of Greek, whether used by itself or in conjunction with its sister volume.
Review by Kathy Davis at homeschoolbuzz.com
If you are planning on teaching your kids ancient Greek, this copybook will prove very useful. A Greek Hupogrammon is a consumable workbook that gives the beginning student generous practice in writing Ancient Greek words, marks, and sentences. Though designed to correspond with A Greek Alphabetarion (also by Harvey Bluedorn), the Hupogrammon is comprehensive enough to be used alone. However, the two books do compliment each other quite nicely, and the student would gain extra benefit by using them together.
The alphabet exercises in the Hupogrammon begin with an example of a capital and lowercase Greek letter with a corresponding scripture. The student then finds the letter in the sampling, practices writing the letter in a given chart, and concludes the lesson with underlying English letters that have the same sound as the practiced Greek letter. Greek letters are reviewed through a matching exercise, where the Greek phonetic spelling is paired with its corresponding English word. Also included is a section devoted to writing out verses of scripture in Greek (the English translation is conveniently provided). The material layout is organized, and the bold large type makes this non-threatening and student friendly. This format works. The Hupogrammon is a very practical way to enhance your child’s Greek lessons. Your kids will find this type of copy work fresh, fun and challenging. My 10-year-old son is breezing through this and retaining what he’s learning without difficulty. Ancient Greek has suddenly become his favorite subject-I never saw that coming!
