Product Description:

Publisher Description:

Students are prone to forget what they have learned from year to year. This loss is especially detrimental to the Latin student, who must remember vocabulary words, inflected forms, and grammar from previous years. To ensure that students carry over what they have learned, Memoria Press has developed the First Form Latin Review, a summer course which features vocab review, form drills, and other exercises, including newly-devised translation workshops, all designed to foster mastery and retention.

Category Description for First Form Latin Series (Gr. 5-AD):

Mastery is the key to success in Latin and this program is designed to produce mastery. The First Form series is a projected four text series (First, Second, Third, & Fourth Forms) from Memoria Press that will teach Latin grammar completely and thoroughly and move the student firmly into translation and reading. Each Student Text provides concise, 2-page lessons with a specific format: a Latin saying, a set of grammar forms, vocabulary, a grammar lesson, and some elementary syntax. The corresponding workbook has 4-6 pages of exercises and well-designed drills per lesson that guide the student and teacher through the lesson. Other components of the program include weekly quizzes, cumulative tests, flashcards, a pronunciation CD and instructional DVDs. 4th to 6th graders can expect to spend about 3 hours per week for an academic year; grades 7th and up can cover a volume in one semester or less.

The Teacher Manual is "where the action is" so to speak. It includes a lesson overview, a wrap-around text that includes a scripted lesson and grammar "chalk-talk" (again, scripted in question and answer format utilizing a white board). In addition to explaining the integration of workbook, drills, quizzes, and recitation, there are suggestions for incorporating the Lingua Angelica program. Games and Review Activities complete the offering. Teacher prep is also spelled out very well: read and reread the Teaching Guidelines for each lesson, read and reread the student text and teacher manual, do all workbook exercises (yes, the teacher will need her own workbook). While this may seem like a lot to remember the assumption is that the teacher does not know Latin herself and is therefore learning along with the student, staying one complete lesson ahead in terms of prep. Appendices to the Teacher's Manual include Latin conversations, prayers and sayings with translations, and a grammar reference. I must say, there is something very satisfying about a well-ordered Latin program. It just makes you want to dig in and learn it.

The Text Set includes the Student Text, Workbook, Test & Quizzes, Pronunciation CD, and Teacher Manual, Workbook & Quiz/Test Answer Key. The Complete Set includes all the items of the Text Set plus the flashcards and the instructional DVDs. These DVDs are taught by Glen Moore or Jessica Watson of Highlands Latin School, utilizing humor and a variety of visual techniques. The Grammar Wall Charts, where available, are not included in any set. They are 17x33 (folded), heavy paper, color charts providing visuals for the grammar taught in the course. (Be prepared to "donate" a significant amount of wall space to these charts.)If you don't have or don't want to donate the wall space, consider using the Desk Charts, which are down-sized versions of the Wall Charts. First Form and Second Form are packaged together.

The Student Text includes historical notes and photos of current scenes and artifacts. The Lesson Plans provide week-by-week daily checklists of the Text and Workbook lessons, assignments, review, drills, quizzes, and tests. Incorporating Famous Men of Rome (also published by Memoria) is optional but will add an additional historical element into the study. ~ Janice

We got most of the way through First Form Latin last school year, and could use some review before we move on.
