Quarter Two

Hello Parents,
Welcome back! I hope you all had an enjoyable and restful break. This quarter, our theme is food. We will be learning a wide variety of nouns for fruits, vegetables, meats, desserts, drinks, etc. We will be expanding our vocabulary to include several adjectives to describe the flavors and qualities of food. In addition, we will practice many verbs to communicate the activities surrounding eating and cooking. All of our study will culminate in the reading of Eruca Famelicior (The Very Hungry Caterpillar). The kindergarteners will simply be working towards comprehension of the text.

Quarter One

Hello, Parents!
We're starting to get back into the swing of things in Latin class, and I wanted to give you all a look at what we will be covering in Latin this quarter.

Even in this quarter, however, we will go further in depth with the grammar rules with each ascending class. Below I have outlined the phrases, vocabulary, and grammar rules we will cover throughout the quarter for your reference.

Classroom Phrases:
Salvete, discipuli! - Hello, students!
Salve, magistra! - Hello, teacher!
Valete, discipuli! - G…

Welcome to K-2 Latin!

Hello! My name is Meredith Bishop, and I am the Kindergarten, First, and Second Grade Latin teacher. I received a Bachelor's of Liberal Arts from Gutenberg College, a classical, Great-Books school in 2017. Now I am working towards a Master's in the Humanities with a focus in classical education from University of Dallas.
Last year was my first year with Archway Lincoln, and it was such a joy. I am looking forward to an even better year with your students studying the Latin language and the people of Rome.
