First Form Latin update - week 4

Today's lesson focused on the second principal part of Latin verbs - the infinitive.  To translate this form into English, the students will use to + the verb (to love, to shout, to pray are all infinitives).  Students need to be sure that they know ALL the vocabulary words presented thus far - and be able to conjugate them in the present, imperfect, and future tenses.

We talked a little more about the Spartans and the meaning behind our saying from last week - "And then we will fight in the shade."  We also learned a little about Roman roads - including its most famous - the Appian Way (Via Appia).

Engrade: All grades are posted through www.engrade.com.  On the first day of classes your student was given an access code.  If you have not registered and you need this code, please let me know and I'll email it to you.  Grades are typically entered within 24 hours of the class so that progress can be monitored at anytime. 

Tuition: If you are on the monthly payment plan, tuition for October is due next week.
 

Homework:
  1. Re-read the text book lessons – pages 8-17 
  2. Practice your vocabulary by recitation (practice words from Lessons 1 -3!)
  3. Add the infinitive form to each of your note cards. (Be sure to add it to the Latin side.  Remember that we will eventually learn the 3rd and 4th principal parts so you will want to leave room for those to be added later as well) 
  4. Do the workbook pages for Lesson 4 (pages 25-29)
