Easy and Free Latin

After cutting out the flashcards, they fit very nicely in a Sloyd project. 

Salve! (Google says this means welcome in Latin)

One of the hardest subjects I have tempted to breach this year, besides French, has to be Latin.  I love words, I have books full of them. πŸ˜‰  Yet, when faced with teaching this to my children, it scared me.  I have always thought that I needed someone who worked at the Smithsonian with five PhDs to walk me through this.

This is where the Public Domain came to my rescue.  While perusing Google Books, I discovered a neat little (free)Latin Primer that fit my bill rather nicely.  It is easy enough to not scare the wits out of my children, yet progresses nicely in difficulty.  I printed this book and put it into a 3-ring binder for use.

Another hurdle was making sure I am pronouncing these words correctly for my children.  This is where I consulted a PDF I found online and a YouTube channel to set me straight.  From the PDF, I created flash cards so I may quiz the children.  Lastly, I designed another PDF page so that the girls could write down their exercises in an orderly manner.  These will have holes punched and be put into a folder labeled “Latin”.

In the pictures, my printouts are spotty with black.  Please forgive my printer, it is a hot mess at the moment and we are not on speaking terms.  Yours won’t print like this unless you too are nursing a broken printer.  All of the links I mentioned are below and all of the printouts are free, it will only cost you ink.  Fruor! (Enjoy!)
