Make sure you complete your crossword puzzle for Stage 6 by Friday, 2/8. It will help you review the vocabulary words from this Stage and help you prepare for the upcoming test!
Remember to study for your quiz which is going to be on Thursday 1/31.
Since we have been looking at the Perfect and Imperfect forms of verbs in Stage 6, you need to be able to differentiate between those forms of verbs but also note what the singular and plural forms of Imperfect and Perfect verbs look like. This is what the quiz will be testing you for! Bonam fortunam!
Your midterm for the first semester will be on Thursday, 1/17! Make sure you are studying and preparing for success!
The format will be 45 multiple choice questions, all from Stage 5. So make sure you look over the work we did for Stage 5, in particular the vocabulary and the grammar. We learned the plural forms for verbs and also that there has to be an agreement between the subject (Nominative case) and the verb. Bonam Fortunam!
Just a reminder that for tomorrow’s class, we will be learning how to play an ancient Roman board game – Mola!
You will need 18 game pieces; one set of 9 for one team, and another set of 9 for the second team. You can use anything you want – glass beads, marbles, coins, buttons, whatever you can find. You just want each team’s game pieces to be uniform meaning the same color.
You will also need a game board surface to play the game on. You can use cardboard, or any flat surface you can find. Try looking for some old boxes – there are probably some around your house now.
Bring these materials and we will create our own Mola game boards tomorrow in class so you can share the fun with your family over holiday break as we celebrate Saturnalia!
On Tuesday, 12/18, we will be having our quiz for Stage 5. In this chapter, we focused on how the subject of a sentence must always agree with its verb. For example, a plural subject means the verb must also be plural, and if the subject is singular then the verb must also be singular. Study over Stage 5 and be ready for your quiz!
Make sure that you print out and complete your Crossword puzzle for Stage 5 for our next class on 12/18! Remember you can practice the online version first but you need to print out the assignment and bring it back to class.
Remember to study for your test which we are having on Stage 4 this Friday, 12/14.
The test will be multiple choice and consist of 41 questions. Make sure you know how to use verbs and your personal endings (ego, tu). Remember which ending belongs on each verb; which ones end:
- in -o?
- in -s?
- in -t?
Make sure you review your verb endings for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd person forms. Remember that “ego” uses which ending for verbs? “tu” uses which ending?
Make sure you also know your forms of sum, es, and est. Your quiz will be on Monday, 12/10 when we meet again!
Make sure you print out and fill out your Stage 3 Crossword puzzle for class on Wednesday! Remember you can practice with the web-based version before you go about filling out your copy to bring back to class.
Remember to look over your notes for Stage 3 – we focused on the Accusative case and the Nominative case. You will need to know how to use those noun cases in Latin sentences for your quiz on Wednesday!
