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

Picked this for some casual homeschooling with my pre-K-er. We attend the Latin Mass so I thought this would help (even though ecclesiastical Latin is different).

Learning latin will help in understanding words and other languages. This programme looked like it will be fun.

Recommended by friend.

Both of my students - a 4 year old and an 8 year old - will enjoy these DVDs as part of their Latin studies!
Shauna N on Jul 1, 2017
I have the book and was hoping the DVDs would help keep my youngers productively occupied while I work with my older child.
Rachel S on Jun 28, 2017
We are learning Latin this year and decided to use this curriculum. We already have the student book.

early latin series progresses to latin for children
Adam S on Nov 8, 2016
I purchased this DVD after purchasing and previewing the CD and workbook. I think it will enhance our Latin studies this year and help me as the teacher learn correct pronunciation.
Jill D on Aug 23, 2016
I have heard good things about this program and the DVD series. I have several young children learning Latin (and I can use all the help I can get!).

I heard that this helps enhance the lessons taught in the book even though it is not required.
Ericka H on Jun 7, 2016
Because I've been using the book for a while and really like it. I thought that DVD would be a fun supplement.
Michelle M on May 25, 2016
Cheaper than the full bundle - cheap enough to try out and see how well it works. Might be back later to buy the bundle if it works well.
Amanda C on Apr 12, 2016
Needing a fun way to encourage my elementary school student to learn Latin. Looks like a fun/effective way to learn and review what she is learning from another curriculum.

Lisa S on Jan 16, 2018
Can I use this as a stand alone or do I have to buy the book?
A shopper on Mar 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You can use it as a stand alone. The book does correlate with the DVD as each chapter in the book covers the same words that the DVD presents. If your child is very young and doesn't read or write much then the book would not be beneficial. I've used both the book and DVD set for my 1st and 3rd graders this year and we have enjoyed both used together. We watch the DVD lesson on Day 1 then on Day 2 and 3 we do activities in the book and listen to the songs from the CD, which comes with the book for extra reinforcement.
This says DVD "set." Is this a book and DVD or just the DVD?
User on Aug 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This is just a DVD set that goes along with the book. The book itself comes with a CD that has songs. The DVD set allows your child to watch each lesson. It has a short clip for each lesson, cute and simple. My son likes them and it helps me out by explaining the new information.

Wonderful program
My kids love this DVD. We watch it on Tuesdays and they get so excited. We use this to supplement the book and cd. The kids really enjoy learning Latin and I believe a big part is because this program makes it fun. My children are 5 and 7.
