Quarter Three Week One

Hello parents! I hope you all had a restful break. I am excited to start our third quarter this week. This quarter, the focus of our vocabulary will be nature terms. In addition, we will learn some basic adjectives as well. For grammar, we will focus on the accusative case. The major use of the accusative case, which will be our focus, is the direct object. The direct object is the object of the action of the sentence. An easy way to identify the direct object is to ask "What does the subjectverb?" For example, in the sentence "The dog chases the ball," you would ask, "What does the dog chase?" The answer, "the ball," is the direct object of the sentence. Below, I will list the material covered this week.

Quarter Two Week Six

Since I only have one lesson with your students this week, we will not be introducing any new material. I will be reviewing what we have learned so far this quarter. Time allowing, we will learn how to say what we are thankful for in Latin. We will learn how to say "Sum gratus/grata propter..." (I am thankful for...). I will help each student fill in the blank in Latin depending on their answer.
Have a happy Thanksgiving and a restful break.
