Latin for Children declared #1

Thank you to the readers of Practical Homeschooling Magazine! The Latin for Children* series has been declared the first place winner in the Latin category by the readers of Practical Homeschooling Magazine for 2011. Each year Practical Homeschooling Magazine presents awards for the best educational products in various categories, as voted by their readers. It is the most prestigious award for homeschooling curricula.

The Latin for Children series is a three-year series (primers A, B and C) designed to teach upper elementary students Latin vocabulary, grammar and translation skills incrementally and creatively. The Latin primers are complimented by numerous accessory products including a History Reader and Activity Book for each primer as well instructional DVDs, audio chant CDs and a full-color flash card game. The Latin for Children, Primer A, was first published in 2001. A companion website, www.HeadVentureLand.com, also provides games and videos which support students using the Latin for Children series. The Latin FlashDash game on the site allows students to review and study vocabulary, and the Chart Challenge game helps them practice various verb and noun endings. HeadventureLand.com also features electronic readers in Latin and English as well as a collection of animations that compose an ongoing story which reviews the vocabulary from the Latin for Children series. The Latin for Children materials are available to purchase directly through Classical Academic Press, or through many other homeschooling retailers, and catalog companies.

Classical Academic Press also provides many free resources for the series available on its website at www.ClassicalAcademicPress.com. Free resources include printable tests, exercises, flash cards, activities and charts. The site also features an “Ask the Magister” (teacher) service so that students and teachers can receive online help with Latin questions.

*Latin for Children is a primer series designed for students in the elementary or grammar school.  It may be considered as a precursory program to the Latin Alive! series.
