Halcyon Posted February 17, 2012 Share Posted February 17, 2012 This is a fascinating thread (which I realize I commented on a few months ago). My 4th grader has been plugging away with Henle 1. We are just about done with Units 1 and 2 and will dive into Unit 3 in a few weeks. He is one of those kids described above that "sees" the declension and makes connections easily. I, however, need a LOT of review and visual mind maps to remember things. We are definitely noticing that sometimes, when translating a sentence, that certain words and their definitions become more obvious based on context, and he is remembering more easily now the endings without going through the declension in his head. I think Henle provides a good amount of practice in this.. The English to Latin translations (challenging as they are) require us to be much more careful and to really KNOW our declensions.
