Origins – Week of August 28 – September 1

Monday 8/28 – A green Latin vocabulary sheet was handed out which contains all of the information needed for the next few days. We learned the Latin numbers 1-10 and completed a practice worksheet using numbers 1-10.

Tuesday 8/29 – We reviewed numbers 1-10 and added numbers 11-20. Went over yesterday’s practice worksheet using numbers 1-10, then completed a practice worksheet that included numbers 1-20. This worksheet was turned in for a classwork grade.

Wednesday 3/20 – We used our green Latin vocabulary sheet to go over all of the basic conversational phrases. The class did a popcorn practice asking each other how they are doing and what is their name, then we did a partner practice following the entire basic conversation in Latin.

Thursday 8/31 – Today we used our green Latin vocabulary sheet to learn the days of the week and months of the year. We focused more on the days of the week and sang along with a song to help us remember them. The months of the year look very familiar to the English months. We also completed a practice worksheet using the days of the week and months of the year.

Friday 9/1 – Today we started learning about the Roman architecture. We focused only the famous architecture found around Rome, Italy. We also completed a practice matching worksheet on the architecture.
