Second and Third Form Latin update - week 5

Today's Second Form lesson focused on two elements of Latin grammar.  The first one is 3rd declension -i stem nouns (looking at them in both genders) - and the rules that go with determining if they are -i stems or exceptions.  Secondly, we talked about the genitive case.  The genitive case is used to show possession in Latin.

In Third Form, we continued with the perfect passive system, focusing on the pluperfect passive.  The vocabulary for this week is conjunctions - but some of them function quite differently in Latin than they do in English.

Homework: 

  • Review the grammar and vocabulary! 
  • Re-read the text book pages 18-19 
  • Workbook pages - Second Form: 24-28 (skip 3, 9, and 10 on page 24); Third Form- pages 34-39
  • Notecards + derivatives 
  • Second Form: Create an English sentence with a subject and verb and at least 1 genitive, a dative, an adjective, and an accusative.  Translate into Latin 
  • Review, review, review!
  • Upcoming projects: Connor - Oct 17 - Diorama of a Roman house; Carson - Oct 31 - Pliny (elder and younger); Benjamin - Nov 7 - Herculaneum and Pompeii; Maya - Nov 14; Caleb - Nov 28 - Livy
