First Form Latin - week 13 update

Today we began a new unit and had our first taste of Latin nouns.  There are four parts to memorize (and to have a proper dictionary entry): nominative singular, genitive singular, gender, and meaning.  We spent a lot of time in class declining nouns to get used to the system and the students quickly were able to decline nouns without having to consult their books to see the endings!  We even declined nouns that they haven't learned yet because they are all done the same way.  They had fun trying to guess what the words might mean.

Homework:
  • Read the text book pages 38 and 40-41
  • Workbook pages for lesson 14: pages 77-79 (you may skip question 17 on page 77)
  • Make note cards for your new vocabulary words + derivatives
  • Last day of class for this semester is Monday December 17
  • Imani - presentation "Roman House and Family"
