First Form Latin - September 23 update

"In umbra, igitur, pugnabimus."

We began class today with oral drill work, a quiz, and then recitation and review.  In the back of the workbooks are both vocabulary and grammar review sheets - the students can work on quizzing themselves as part of their studying each day.  Repetition - especially in the form of chanting out loud - will really help to cement the vocabulary and forms to memory.  Students need to be sure to review vocabulary words from each lesson - words from week one will show up on quizzes week after week!

Our grammar lesson today was how to form the future tense for first conjugation verbs.

Reminder: Each student is required to do a cultural event.  I have a field trip scheduled for the class on Saturday November 9th at Trinity Lutheran Church - we will have a Roman banquet.  Cost is $18/student and reservations must be made by October 26.  There is a limited space so it's possible that all slots will be filled before the cut off date.  If you are able to attend, please bring payment to reserve your spot as soon as possible.  If you cannot go, please contact me and I can make some suggestions for other events/museums you might attend instead.

Homework:


1. Make flash cards for each of your Latin words.  On one side write the Latin, on the other the English meaning + derivative found the book + one more found in a dictionary.

2. Re-read the text book lesson – pages 14 – 15

3. Practice your vocabulary by recitation (practice words from both Lesson 1, 2, and 3!)

4. Do the workbook pages for Lesson 3 (pages 20-24) (NOTE BENE: you may skip questions 5 - 8 on page 20)
5.  Caleb S - presentation on Roman Roads due September 30
