    First Form Latin, Year 2 for January 10th

    Happy New Year!  I want to start by telling you how overwhelmed and grateful I am at the outpouring of love that you showed to me on the last Friday before break.  Thank you for all the wonderful goodies!  I so enjoyed hearing you sing Adeste Fideles in both Latin and English.  If fact, at one point I almost lost track of what I was playing because I was paying so much attention to your sweet voices! This week we start Lesson  XXVI. Friday you will be quizzed on all of page 66, the saying, chart, and vocabulary words.  Start working on the workbook pages, but they are not due…

    One last week!!! This week, prepare for a vocabulary review quiz on Lessons XXI -XXV.  This covers all 3rd and 4th declension nouns you have had. There will be no charts, just straight vocabulary.  I will give you the English, and you will give me the Latin in COMPLETE dictionary form. The bonus will be all the Latin sayings from Lessons XXI-XXV.  They are worth 1 point a piece for a total of 5 bonus points.  They must be perfect (spelling and word order) to receive credit. Have a great last week of the 2019 school year!!!

    Shurley English 6 for December 6th

    Welcome back from Thanksgiving! This week finish Chapter 13, Lessons 2-4.  There is no writing assignment this week.  Use the extra time to polish up on your synonym/antonym pairs. Parents:  When we start back to school in January, we will be switching from Shurley English 6 Composition to Classical Composition.  If your student doesn’t already have Memoria Press’ Classical Composition I, Fable Stage, this would be an excellent time to order it.  Thank you!

    First Form Latin, Year 2 for November 22nd

    This week finish workbook exercises for Lesson XXV.  I will check this for completion on Friday. We found out last Friday that we are a bit rusty on the perfect system verb conjugations, therefore, we will have a quiz on these on Friday.  The quiz will come from the information on page 34 of Lesson XII.  Know the chart.  Also, there will be translations taken directly for Lesson 10 of the Workbook, Drills A, B, & C. A good way to study would be to start with the chart in front of you and work through the drills making sure you understand what the meanings are, i.e. what the action…
