Very pleased with Minimus
I was asked to teach Latin to a small group of homeschooled students, ages 8-13. Having used Latina Christiana I and II for my own children at that age, I looked for something similar. Given that the class is less than one hour a week and that it is more of an enrichment class, I was thinking of using the Latina Christiana or something similar, but adapting it for use as an enrichment activity. Then I found the Minimus books.

We are having such fun with the program. It is a great blend of Latin vocabulary, culture, and history. The colorful student workbooks capture the attention of the class by using cartoons to introduce dialogue and other concepts. The teacher workbook provides additional simple reinforcement activities that we can use in class, and if you know the most basic Latin, it is easy to prepare for class each week. Finally, there is a Minimus website that offers even more class ideas.

I am so glad that I found the Minimus series. I think that the program offers a solid, fun, and interesting foundation for any student who wishes to continue his Latin studies.

We love this program! It's different in every way from any other Latin (elementary level) program we've tried. We use it with our sixth grader as an introduction to Latin. It is entertaining but also rich with history. I appreciate the story-lesson method and how the student learns more about what life was like for a fictional ancient Roman family.

Does this Teacher's Book include a cd?

Are the CD and teacher manual necessary or can you get away with just the student book?

BEST ANSWER: This curriculum was new to me and I did purchase the Teacher Manual. I found it very helpful in giving me historical and cultural background that supported the immersion style of the story driven lessons. It also gave me worksheets and/or activities for each lesson that were reproducible. I have taught this class to 3rd graders for 5 years and I am always referring back to the Manual. I admit I never used the CD but I would make it available to the students. I do not have reliable feedback to know whether it was useful or even used by the children.
