• First Form Latin, Year 2

    First Form Latin, Year 2 for September 27th

    For this week, study Lesson XXII and work on the exercises. You do not need to finish these this week. Your quiz for Friday will consist of the third declension chart on page 58. You will need to be able to duplicate this from scratch, or dare I say “ex nihilo!” Also, ANYTHING from Lesson IV could be included on the quiz. Remember, you will only have 10 minutes to take the quiz. Study thoroughly! Finally, if a parent is reading this, please (if possible) have your child read this assignment also.  I’m consistently hearing reports of students not knowing the full assignment. Thank you!
