Since Matthew had never had any exposure to Latin, we were provided with the Latin for Children A, Mastery Bundle. Every piece of this set has been valuable to our learning Latin experience.
This set is designed for grades 3-6. It is the first set in a series of three. It is followed by Set B and Set C. This set includes:
- Primer A Textbook
- Primer A Answer Key
- DVDs & Chant CDs
- History Reader
- Activity Book
Latin for Children can also be purchased in a Basic Bundle. This includes the textbook, answer key and DVD & Chant CD. That set is $76.95. You can purchase each item separately and also additional items to complement your curriculum including flash cards and a test packet. Each level A-C offers bundles and individual items. If you have older children, you will enjoy the Latin Alive! curriculum which is designed for grades 9-12. Or, if you have younger children, select Song School Latin which is for grades K-3.
The website offers several FREE RESOURCES! Just a few examples of what you will find there are:
- Flash Dash Game
- Suggested Weekly Schedule
- Quizzes & Tests with Answer Keys
- Basic Latin Charts
- Flash Cards
Latin for Children exposes the student to Classical and Ecclesiastical Latin. You can choose whichever you prefer and all the tools cover both. Even the DVD has an option at the beginning to choose which style you want to see/hear. We prefer to use the DVD more often than the CD when at home because it covers what the CD offers AND provides a video lesson of the grammar covered for the Chapter. The Chants are done by children and they use hand motions to accompany the words being sung. Matthew really enjoys that. The CD is a great tool for use in the car.
We have been so excited about learning Latin with Classical Academic Press' Latin for Children that I could go on and on about it. I'll stop right here though. I leave you with this video which will answer many more of your questions and give you even more insight into the approach of this curriculum. Enjoy!
