Latin for 3rd grade - what did you use?


Recommended Posts

Kiddo is heading into 3rd grade, and excited about starting Latin. I, however, have no idea which Latin program to use!


I had considered Song School, but it seems too young for 3rd grade.


We are secular, and prefer curricula without a lot of bells and whistles, although DS might like a DVD. He loves short and sweet lessons, a la FLL.


What did you use, and did you like it?

The lessons in Getting Started with Latin are as "short & sweet" as you can get. You can go as slowly as you like (1 lesson/day) or race ahead, doing multiple lessons/day, if your child is excited and is really "getting" it. It's cheap, fun (kids get to start translating sentences right away), flexible, and very effective. There are free audio files online. You could also add in Minimus, which is lots of fun but not as "kiddy" as Song School Latin. Both programs are completely secular.
