My third trimester nest-iness is manifesting itself in manic attempts to hyper-organize our homeschool stuff. With four kids in four different grades, plus two littles, plus me needing an afternoon nap (NEED the nap) I often find it hard to find the time to give the kids their weekly quizzes orally. That can end up problematic, especially if it turns out later that they were studying something wrong, or skipping something entirely.
So, I prefer to have the quizzes in writing, that way they can do them on their own if necessary.
We use Prima Latina
in the fourth grade (the Mother of Divine Grace syllabus suggests either Prima Latina or a modified Latina Christiana I). I had already bought Prima Latina on the recommendation of a friend when Jack was in first grade (we did NOT end up using it then!), so I prefer to use that for the fourth grade, then move on to Latina Christiana I for fifth grade.
I’ve been really happy with the program, ESPECIALLY with the DVDs. I’ve never taken Latin, so I am much more comfortable with having someone else to introduce the concepts and pronunciations (in a cute southern accent!).
BUT, there are no weekly quizzes with the Prima Latina course, just 5 tests for the year. Like I said, I wasn’t getting to the assigned oral quizzes. Like I said, I’ve got a case of the pregnant crazies. So I MAY have stayed up until 3am last night typing up quizzes for the year.
On the off chance that anyone who reads this blog also uses Prima Latina but isn’t crazy and therefore does not have plans to stay up all night making quizzes, I figured I’d post them here: Prima Latina Lesson Quizzes.
It’s my first try embedding a pdf link, so please let me know if it works (or doesn’t work) for you.
