First Form Latin - week 9 update

Note: Tuition is due the first Thursday of every month.

Our grammar lesson today focused on the pluperfect tense.  This tense refers to actions in the past that happened before another action in the past.  For example: I had eaten my snack before my friend arrived.  The key marker of pluperfect in English is the helping verb "had."

Homework:
1. Re-read the text book lessons - pages 28-29
2. Practice your vocabulary by recitation.  Make sure you not only know this week's vocabulary - but all previous weeks!
3. Create notecards for each new vocabulary word + derivatives
4.  Do the workbook pages for Lesson 9 (pages 50-54)
5. Project presentations for November 12: Grace (Roman architecture and aqueducts); November 19: Aidan (Science in Ancient Rome); Dec 10: Imani (Roman house and family). Note: if you do a power point as your visual, you still need to turn in the one page paper plus the bibliography.
