Talk about a big, huge, GIGANTIC sigh of relief! My student workbook for Latin - Latin Fructus Discipuli Workbook (part I) is FINALLY finished!! The teacher edition will take me a few more weeks, so I decided to have a sale on just the student workbook (when the teacher edition is complete I'll sell them in one package, but those who get the student workbook will be offered the teacher edition at a discount separately as well). It's 6 Chapters with 4 'lessons' per chapter so it can be done in 6 months or 1 whole year.
I can't believe it's finally finished! (and only 135 pages long!)...lol...and it has everything from body parts, to foods, to mythology, to nursery rhymes......my kids can't wait to use it - I'll be using it to teach a class at our co-op this Sept! The teacher wrkbk should be done in a week or so and will include the answer sheets, more worksheets for each lesson, more songs, more crafts, experiments, history projects...just More I guess...LOL...
Thanks for all the encouragement ladies, it was rough going for a while!
As soon as I'm done with the MAGISTRA (teacher's) Workbook I'll be posting videos to my YouTube page, I'll be doing the vocab with the 'Conversation Challenges", also the nursery rhymes/songs -like I re-wrote songs like "My Bonnie Lies Over The Ocean" to have Latin lyrics that relate to a given lesson. Oh, and the translation to the Conversation's are in the Answer Key.
For the "bonnie" song I wrote about Families -
"My MATER is really my mother,
My father is PATER to me,
My brother is sometimes my FRATER,
My SOROR is sister to me.
FAMILIA is family to me, to me;
FAMILIA is special to me!"
I actually thought doing the songs was a little silly, and harder than you would think to write! But my oldest, who is the ultimate-cool-always-aware-of-his-image, has been teaching his favorite songs to all his friends...lol...All the songs but for the actual translated lyrics to Twinkle Twinkle are found in the teacher workbook.
Oh, it's available on my home educators toolbox webpage.
