3rd grade Latin?

Recommended Posts

Latin is the one thing that I'm absolutely clueless about.


After lots of reading, I've narrowed it down to Latin for Children Primer A (Classical Academic Press) or Little Latin Reader Primers A & B (Catholic Heritage Curricula). Ack! I can't decide!


FWIW, we are Catholic and are planning to memorize some Latin prayers next year, and DH would like to take DS8 to a Latin mass during the year.

I don't know anything about the Catholic program...but LFC is in our plans for this year because he likes the activities and games that make it fun. I need Latin to be enjoyable for us to continue on. He likes the supplemental Headventureland. So that is pretty much why we are doing LFC.

Is this strictly ecclesiastical pronunciation, or doesn't it matter?


It is a Catholic curriculum and therefore is completely Ecclesiastical.


But, no *I* (a neophyte) don't think it matters. If any of us get high enough in to Latin that we can converse with priests or classics majors in Latin, I am thinking we'll have enough sense to sort out minor pronunciation differences :)

We have LOVED CHP Little Latin Readers! I reviewed the first couple levels somewhere, let me see if I can find it....


ETA-- Here it is :)


I stumbled on your review awhile back and looked at some of the samples. I never took Latin in high school, so have been learning with dd while doing SSL. It was a triumph looking at the samples because I could say, I know what that means!


As a fun side note, Daedalus Books has a Latin translation of Ferdinand for $4.
