    Lingua Latina for September 4th

    Kudos to my discipuli latinae! Another great week! This week finish what we didn’t complete of VL Lessons 7-10 and complete VL Lesson 11 on your own. (Of course, text me if you have any questions.) I will hand out a test next Friday. This needs to be proctored and signed by a parent and returned the following week. The test is closed book/notes/internet/parent/friend/etc. The test will include vocabulary for VL Lessons 1-10 (I will give the Latin; you will give the English.) and the grammar concepts from VL Lessons 1-10. Of course, I mentioned a bonus worth 5 points in class last Friday. Have a great week!

    Friday went very well. Both Beth and Colbie shared great long term and short term goals! The only item needing completion in Chapter 1 is Vocabulary Words #2. Students can find the vocabulary on page 7 of the reference section of the Student Book. Please follow the Reference 2: Six-Step Vocabulary Plan on page 9 of the Student Book. One other thing, don’t forget that I’ll check up to 6 Daily Grams (DG) on Friday that will count as extra credit on the first test!
