Song School Greek
The Song School Greek Program is a lively and gentle introduction to Koine Greek—the language of the New Testament. One of the mother tongues of the English language, Greek is also a perfectly orderly language, ideal to help us understand the structure of any language and learn how a language works. This program is an excellent prequel to our grammar-based, upper-elementary Greek for Children series.
In Song School Greek (Student Edition), each of the 32 weekly lessons includes songs, fun vocabulary, illustrations, handwriting practice, stories, games, and activities. Enjoyable, everyday vocabulary is introduced in each lesson to encourage and engage young students. A lively musical CD is included with the book and features the vocabulary from each chapter.
Are you concerned about teaching Greek? The accompanying Song School Greek Teacher’s Edition includes answer keys, pronunciation keys, teaching suggestions, and a special DVD for parents and teachers that will teach you the basics of the language. You can do it!
This is a consumable item.
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.
In the same spirit as Classical Academic Press' Song School Latin, this gentle course introduces early elementary students to the language of the New Testament, Koine Greek. There are 30 weekly lessons, each of which includes catchy songs that introduce basic vocabulary, writing practice, stories, games and fun activities. The musical CD is included with the student's book. The Teacher's Edition includes the answer keys and teaching suggestions. Although previously included, the DVD is no longer packaged with the Teacher's Edition, but the video content will be available on the Classical Academic Press website. For extra vocabulary practice, consider the Greek Beak Match Flashcard Game. This flashcard set contains over 130 Greek 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. You can use this as a stand-alone introduction to learning Koine Greek, or as a prequel to the newly-released Greek for Children. ***The pronunciation used in the songs is more like Koine than modern Greek and may come off as "cute" or even unauthentic to some. Keep in mind that this is a challenging language made accessible to young learners.*** Jess/Sara
