The Work Plan

Thursday, May 27, 2010


 This week we have been  learning our Latin Greeting Words. The children love the music and it has been a great routine for the end of the day circle time. Words we learned so far are;
  1. salve- hello
  2. vale- goodbye
  3. discipuli- students
  4. magister/magistra-teacher
   When the children enter or leave our school they have been addressing me as magistra, or their friends as discipuli. Teaching the greetings allowed me to present a grace and courtesy lesson. They learned how to shake each others hands when greeting using eye contact.  I can see how guiding the children  through our Latin  curriculum can lead to big things in music, language development, and grammar.

  1. Hi there! In case you're like me (I tend to forget to re-visit blogs where I ask questions), the Melissa & Doug Solar System Puzzle is from Marshalls. You can get it at Amazon. The link is on my post. They have 2 other beautiful puzzles: dinosaurs & sea creatures.
