LEAD - First Form Latin update - week 13

Today we learned how to decline 2nd declension nouns.

The students need to be sure that their notecards reflect the correct information.  On the Latin side, there should be the nominative singular, genitive singular, and the gender:

equus, equi, m 

Then on the English side - the meaning and derivatives:

horse

equine, equestrian

The students worked on declining in the 2nd declension and quickly memorized the endings.  

Homework:

  • Read the text book pages 42-43
  • Workbook for lesson 15: 80-83 (you may skip questions, 4, 5, and 7 on page 80 as this follows a different pronunciation guide than what we are using.)
  • Make notecards for your new vocabulary words.  Find an additional derivative for the words in the vocabulary list that already list a derivative.
  • Tuition for December is due next week - please also send in your $10 for the National Latin exam as these will need to be ordered before the end of December.
