Publisher Description:

Continuing on a path that matches the energy, developmental level, and fun-loving nature of younger students, Song School Latin Book 2 (Student Edition) completes the engaging introduction to Latin started in Song School Latin Book 1. Weekly lessons include songs, chants, new and review vocabulary, a light introduction to Latin grammar, and derivatives, all without leaving behind fun illustrations, stories, games, and activities. Song School Latin Book 2 will more than prepare students for their journey on to Latin for Children Primer A. They will surely continue their love of learning Latin with Song School Latin Book 2! Song School Latin Book 2, with 30 corresponding songs and chants on the included CD, is an interactive workbook text with fun activities; 32 weekly lessons, including 7 review chapters; and 175 everyday vocabulary words, including 75 words and grammar topics from Latin for Children Primer A.

Q: Can I purchase a second student edition without the CD for my other students/children?

A: Unfortunately, no. Because we print such large quantities of the student edition with the CD included, we would actually have to charge more for a version without a CD if we did a small print run.

This is a consumable item.

Category Description for Song School Latin (Gr. K-3):

If you expect a program with this name to be a gentle auditory introduction to Latin, you’ve nailed it! But be sure to note that this program is also well-constructed, easy-to-use, and FUN. After all, you have a monkey illustrating each chapter, familiar tunes introducing the vocabulary, understandable explanations (i.e. Latin nouns are grouped into five families, or declensions), and just the right amount of practice. What more could you ask for as a painless way to infuse some Latin into your young child’s day? Each chapter is a week’s worth of instruction. New vocabulary words are introduced and featured in a song. These songs are primarily English with appropriate words in Latin and are often set to familiar tunes. (i.e. If you’re happy and you know it, touch your nose – na-res!) The words to each song are printed both in the student text and the teacher’s book along with the specific CD track where the song is found. Actually, I should say “tracks” because each song and its Latin words are presented in two tracks – one with classical pronunciation and one with ecclesiastical. A two-page guide found in both the teacher and student books delineates the distinctions between the two pronunciations and concludes “ultimately the decision (about which to use) is not a significant one.”

Each chapter has a short lesson (grammar) which includes an historical linguistic tidbit as well as a famous Latin saying the student is to memorize. Some chapters include a story which intersperses Latin words with the English. Then it’s up to the student to Practice Your Latin (writing the words), Show What You Know (brief vocabulary identification), Grow Your English (English words with Latin roots), and Review Words (past vocabulary words). Often a cut-and-paste (or some other sort of hands-on activity) is included for reinforcement. Review chapters are included regularly. The Student Book is a worktext which includes the song CD. The Teacher’s Edition is identical to the Student book (but no CD) with answers filled in and teacher’s notes inserted as shaded boxes. While most moms/teachers will be able to figure out the correct answers, the notes and additional activities in the Teacher’s book flesh out the course. DVDs for each course contain 24 ten-minute episodes – one for each lesson in the book covering new material. Each episode features vocabulary practice (ecclesiastical and classical pronunciations), grammar lessons, and coverage of derivatives. Each DVD also features a bilingual story featuring Simeon the monkey, providing another opportunity to use the vocabulary from the lesson. The CD is now available separately and includes the same tracks as those found on the CD in the Student Book. For those who aren’t ready to commit to a Latin curriculum, the CD introduces cute and kid-friendly songs that can be learned by all. There are no printed words with the CD; those are included in the student and teacher books.

For extra vocabulary practice, consider the Latin Monkey Match Flashcard Game. This flashcard set contains over 100 Latin words (with the English translation appearing in small upside down type); use this set to play the suggested games, or simply use them as traditional flashcards. This program is designed as an introduction to Latin for Children but could be used as a stand-alone, get-acquainted-with-Latin experience. ~ Janice

We need a language for our homeschool curriculum and my daughter loves ancient worlds. She has loved doing book one, and wants to be ready for something more advanced next year. The songs make learning the words easy, and the DVD's make the lessons fun!

I used Song School Latin Book 1 and wanted to continue with the same curriculum with my children. Rainbow had the best price I could find.
Sarah F on Jul 12, 2016
I used the Song School Latin 1 book & CD last year. We just played CD whenever we were in the car. My doing 1 lesson a week, we were able to complete the book in a school year.
Jennifer M on Jun 8, 2016
Because Song School Latin Book 1 worked well for my son. He is phonics oriented and loves music so I think the songs helped. It is an easy curriculum to follow. The Teachers Manual didn't add much with the exception of additional activities for each Chapter. The CD was the biggest help for me, if I can pronounce it, we are lost.
Lisa P on May 28, 2016
Song School provides a gentle, easy way to learn Latin. The CD has cute songs that go along with the new vocabulary, so you can hear how to pronounce the words. The workbooks are fun and full of activities to reinforce the language.

Bonnie S on Oct 30, 2015
Song School Latin is such a gentle introduction to latin for my second grade son. However, he is moving through the first book too quickly for it to last all school year. I figure we might as well begin the second book!

What is the publication year of this Song School Latin 2 Student Book? I want it to be the same as the one I already have for my other child.
A shopper on Jun 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm pretty sure the year is 2013 and that there is only one version of this book. That's what I got last summer anyway when I ordered it.
Does the book include the song CD?
A shopper on Mar 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it does. We usually listen in the car as a way to review.
Does this purchase include the song cd?
A shopper on Mar 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi! Yes, the Song School Latin Student Book/Workbook has the music cd in a vinyl flap on the inside back cover. At least that is where it was on the two I purchased. (We are loving it. It definitely steps up the pace a bit from SSL 1 though.)
