Eastside - First Form Latin week 14 class update

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:


equine, equestrian

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


  • 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.  Be sure to correct your notecards from last week if they were not done in the format noted above.
  • Upcoming presentations: Jan 30 - Sam - Aqueducts; Feb 13 - Chloe - Pandora's box; Feb 20 - Esther - The underworld; April 17 - Benjamin - Nero
  • Reminder - there is no class next week due to the MLK holiday. We will resume classes on January 23.
