Beginning Latin II (Grades 4-5)
Open To:

Students in Grades 4-5

Materials Used:

Beginning Latin II Workbook, Teacher Key.

Description:

Developed at Mother of Divine Grace School. This course moves quickly but thoroughly through the material taught in Beginning Latin 1 and then introduces more complex topics (such as i-stems) around Week 8. This course is still gentle in its approach; the memorization is manageable and constantly reinforced and observation skills are used to recognize grammar forms. Beginning Latin focuses on learning how to conjugate and decline. Most programs emphasize memorizing verb endings and paradigms, but in Beginning Latin, students spend more time studying the  endings and stems as parts of verbs, before jumping into these endings or paradigms, so that conjugation can be done correctly. Nouns are learned through observing their uses in sentences. Students begin with the third declension, rather than the first or second, because most nouns are in the third declension. Students practice using nouns correctly through sentence translations. Students also learn how to build nouns on their stems, how to identify the stems, and the English name equivalents of the Latin cases.  Games are available for reinforcement and optional online quizzes are autograded. Class meets once a week, 30 minutes duration.

“I have found Mother of Divine Grace School to be a support both academically and spiritually. As a distance learning school, Mother of Divine Grace offers a quality Catholic education that rivals the top local private schools. As our children are each unique and have their own optimal learning style, the individualized classical curriculum offered by Mother of Divine Grace School was instrumental in facilitating their academic progress. We took advantage of Mother of Divine Grace’s Teacher Assisted Program and Learning Support Classes. Our children were able to have a teacher objectively evaluate their progress through phone consultations/conferences and written assignments. This accountability required our children to be responsible in meeting deadlines and in some instances, correcting work and sending it back to the teacher. Mastery of the material was the focus.”
