Quarter 2, Week 5 (11/29-12/3)

 New Vocab Practice Logs

The following vocabulary practice log sheets apply to the next two weeks. Students should turn these in the week before the Winter Break (preferably Monday 12/13). Because of significant interruptions to Latin due to a variety of factors (music rehearsals, field day, MAP testing), 3A and 3B (Mrs. Mizell's class and Ms. Tyler's class) will not receive their log sheets until next week. Therefore, students in 3A and 3B will only need 2 signatures rather than 4.

Quarter 2, Week 4 (11/15-11/19)

All grades

Vocab Practice Logs

I am taking up the vocab practice logs that covered the last three weeks. I will NOT be passing out new vocab practice logs until after Thanksgiving, so no vocab practice homework this week.

 3rd and 4th Grades

Bringing Flashcards Up-To-Date

This week, I don't see morning specials (3A, 3B, 4A, 4B) Monday or Tuesday due to music rehearsals, and I won't see 3A and 4A on Thursday due to Field Day. The most important thing we are trying to accomplishing this week is make sure our flashcards are current. 3rd grade should have flashcards for every word on lists 2.1 and 2.2 (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1xS5z7eXm9AbNXU61aFHnHKAqJL7TDkY-/view?usp=drivesdk), and 4th grade should have flashcards for every word on the 5.1 list (https://drive.google.com/file/d/1E6n_pZoon2AQuAXZvtWZMm7p7sL-3Gbt/view?usp=drivesdk). We're completing this in class, but if your child is at home this week (for COVID protocols, for instance) or if I don't see your child in class this week (3A and 4A), if he or she can complete those flashcards at home it will be very helpful and permit us to head into December running.

5th and 6th Grades

Crossword Puzzles and Tests

Crossword puzzle study guides are due Wednesday 11/17 (5D, 5B, 6A, 6C) and Thursday 11/18 (5C, 5A, 6B, 6D), which are also the dates of our 5.2.1 and 6.2.1 vocabulary tests.

*Note* - On the 5.2.1 Crossword, 14 down is "e,ex" (this encompasses both forms of the word, but I should have made it only "ex", for simplicity's sake).
*Note 2* - On the 6.2.1 Crossword, there is a mistake at the intersection of 14 across and 12 down. One word needs an "e" and the other needs a "u". Just write in "e/u".

Quarter 2, Week 1

New Quarter, New Vocab Practice Log

Moving forward, vocabulary practice log sheets (i.e., the sheets that parents sign a couple of times a week to indicate that a student has practiced his/her Latin vocabulary) will cover multiple weeks. This week I am distributing sheets that cover the next three weeks and have places for six signatures (3rd grade; two per week) or nine signatures (4th-6th grades; three per week). Students will keep these sheets in their take-home folders/take-home binders until Monday, November 15 (the week before Thanksgiving break), when they will turn them in. I will give three weekly homework grades based on these sheets. Instructions are printed on the sheets, as are the links to the current Quizlet sets.

***Note: Students may watch Latin music videos on YouTube one day each week for at least 5 minutes for one of their weekly signatures. The other day/two days should be vocabulary practice.***

***Also note: I have been asked about practicing using Duo Lingo's Latin course. One signature each week can be earned by practicing Latin in Duo Lingo.***

Current Quizlet sets (see the Quizlet Links page for links)

3rd grade - LL 2.1 and 2.2

4th grade - LL 5.1

5th grade - 5.2.1 (aka, 5th Quarter 2 Unit 1)

6th grade - 6.2.1 (aka, 6th Quarter 2 Unit 1)

Quarter 1, Week 9 (10/4-10/8)

 

Big Announcement: No New Vocab Practice Logs This Week or Next!

Your scholars should simply make sure that they have turned in every sheet from past weeks. For quarter 1 missing sheets will not receive a zero, but they will receive a lower grade. I will drop the lowest homework grade automatically to account for absences that I may have overlooked.

Even so, I still encourage scholars to practice their Latin vocabulary (see the Quizlet Sets page for the links to following sets).

3rd - practice 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3

4th - practice 2.1, 2.2, and 2.3

5th - practice 5.1.2 aka "Latin 1A Quarter 1 Unit 2" (vocabulary quiz next week)

6th - practice 6.1.2 aka "Latin 1B Quarter 1 Unit 2" (vocabulary quiz next week)

Quarter 1, Week 6 (9/13-9/17)

3rd Grade

Third grade is continuing to learn geographical terms. We have also begun learning the names of the Latin noun cases. Ask your child if he or she can name the cases for you. If they need help, tell them that the first one is "Nominative".

I am again asking for two nights of vocabulary study from the third graders (meaning two signatures on the practice log sheets). Students can study their flashcards (which we have made in class) or the 1.1 and 1.2 Quizlet sets (https://quizlet.com/_8jv31p?x=1jqt&i=25j8cs and https://quizlet.com/_8jv3vj?x=1jqt&i=25j8cs).

4th Grade

We are continuing our review of the first chapter of Lingua Latina. I am again asking for three nights of vocabulary practice this week. Students should be studying the 1.3 words (on the comprehensive lists I gave them in class and which can be downloaded from the "Course Documents" page) or the 1.3 Quizlet set (https://quizlet.com/_8jv4fz?x=1jqt&i=25j8cs).

5th Grade

We have our first vocabulary test this week (over the 5.1.1 list). 5C and 5A will have it on Wednesday 9/15. 5D and 5B will have it on Thursday 9/16. The study guide is a crossword puzzle that is due on the day of the test. If your scholar loses his or her copy of the crossword puzzle, you can download and print it out from https://drive.google.com/file/d/1emP6MJO9gJ9sgJy0bj6Zyocc5f_2QBk9/view?usp=drivesdk.

We also have vocabulary practice logs this week. Doing the crossword puzzle can count for one night of the required three nights of study this week (in other words, when your scholar completes the crossword puzzle, sign log sheet for that day). Practice logs are due next Monday. Replacement log sheets can be found on the "Course Documents" page.

The Quizlet set for 5.1.1 can be found here: https://quizlet.com/_a143ws?x=1qqt&i=25j8cs.

6th Grade

We have our first vocabulary test this week (over the 6.1.1 list). 6B and 6D will have it on Wednesday 9/15. Due to a scheduling conflict, 6A and 6C will take their tests on Monday 9/20 rather than Thursday 9/16, as was originally planned. The study guide is a crossword puzzle that is due on the day of the test. If your scholar loses his or her copy of the crossword puzzle, you can download and print it out from https://drive.google.com/file/d/1BLv7NEWGa5wZV7vcaxVfvtnWgK8dezAS/view?usp=drivesdk.

We also have vocabulary practice logs this week. Doing the crossword puzzle can count for one night of the required three nights of study this week (in other words, when your scholar completes the crossword puzzle, sign log sheet for that day). Practice logs are due next Monday. Replacement log sheets can be found on the "Course Documents" page.
