Weeks 21 and 22 (Latin Printable)

8 Mar

Latin Fourth Declension PacketI’ve heard from so many of you faithful CC blog readers that you’re enjoying the Latin Packets that I’ve made this semester. I’m humbled and elated to hear that they’ve been a blessing to your families! Praise God! 🙂 Here’s the next installment of Latin for Weeks 21 and 22: Latin Fourth Declension Packet. If you’ve missed the First Declension, Second Declension or Third Declension, they are in a similar format. You can also see how I created a “Latin Grid” to use with these packets. I made it on the back of my board that I use in my Abecedarians Class. Enjoy!

    Hurray, thank you again! I hadn’t thought of using them as copy work, but when I read in the comments that others were, I totally smacked myself in the forehead. DUH.

    Where have you been all of my (CC) life! lol. Seriously. Much love for this!!! The pics make sense and maybe even Mom can get it the pronunciations straight! (sad part is that I’m a tutor too, and I struggle w/ how to say the Latin.) 😉 Definitely printing, laminating and using over the summer! (my kids will be thrilled, I’m sure. haha)

      YAY for summer Latin tutoring! hahahaaha! please don’t tell your kids that i gave you these Latin resources. they’ll hate me i’m sure! ha! glad that you’ve stumbled upon my blog!

    Hi, Suzanne! I have a pronunciation question. We are preparing for memory masters in our community and your depiction of the -um ending is slightly different than the audio file on the CC CD. Please know I am NOT judging your work! We have struggled for a few years with the latin pronunciation. What did you use as your guide for the pictures to explain the sounds? I’m hoping that there won’t be any conflict because your pictures are so easy for little ones to understand.

      I went by AJT Latin pronunciations on CC connected. She used “rUMba” (as in a type of dance) for the (-um) endings (in all declensions, for that matter). My kids had no connection with the Rumba, so I thought yUMmy was a better connecting point for them. I can understand you’re question as the 4th declension song sounds slightly like a “oo” as in choose. I re-listened to both the 3rd and 4th declension songs again. Since the spelling was the same, I wanted to be consistent for my kiddos’ sake. I felt more comfortable with the short u vowel sound+m…but I am by no means a Latin expert. 🙂 ha! At our practicum, they reminded us that Latin is an unspoken language and that people had different pronunciations…so I’m not sure what to tell you. 😦 I would just talk to your Director and make sure that it’s consistent in your community as you prepare for MM?? that would be my advice. Hope that helps. Hope I haven’t caused a schism in your community! eek!

        It has definitely NOT caused a schism! 🙂 We were having issues because a mom in our community who also had a daughter in challenge a couple of years ago was frustrated because they were learning ecclesiastical pronunciation while all the foundations pronunciations were classical. Apparently on the director’s portal everyone was saying it was okay for us to do ecclesiastical because of that. Now, they’ve told the directors that they are switching Challenge to classical pronunciation so we have just been all around the block with latin! I agree with the “rumba” problem; no way were these 4-5 year olds going to understand that! I MUCH prefer yours! 🙂 That’s a good point about just being consistent, and people pronouncing things differently. And, another thing I thought about is those vowel sounds are not much different, so switching that sound later would not be as difficult as, say, switching from “ay” to “eye” for the -ae ending. Anyway, thanks for responding and helping me feel better! Haha!
