Carpe diem

Our oldest daughter would like to learn Latin. So we put it on the weekly schedule. We have two kinds of subjects on the weekly schedule – where the children learn individually and where they learn together. Latin is one of the subjects where they learn together. Finding material that is popular with all the children, has been hard. Trying to get to the core of what my daughters goal with learning Latin was, has gotten closer. What they find fun and meaningful with Latin, is the Roman history and mythology. But also how many of the words reminds them of words used in some of the other languages they also are learning. The book “Learning Latin Through Mythology” shown, was found in Foyles in London. We have worked our way through that book and it was a very creative way of learning. We also like to make flash cards and practice them once in a while to remember them.
