PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING LATIN LANGUAGE SKILLS AS WELL AS PRACTICING NUMBERS AND ROMAN NUMERALS!
NUMBERS AND ROMAN NUMERALS GAMES CARDS are perfect for young learners of LATIN. They provide lots of opportunities to learn both numbers and Roman numerals 1-20, and really do help to create a lively language learning environment. Children can develop their skills in word recognition and recall in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, independently of the teacher. It doesn’t if all the numbers and Roman numerals don’t feature in your immediate or even longer-term learning plan: the card games encourage children to engage happily and confidently with LATIN and to begin to identify similarities with ENGLISH.
Children often ask what a LATIN accent sounds like. The truth is that we don’t actually know for sure, because there are no native speakers of LATIN any more. However, I always enjoy using somewhat of an ITALIAN accent where possible!
There are 80 CARDS in total, which include 2 PACKS of 40 CARDS to enable you to vary and differentiate your games:
PACK 1: matching LATIN & ENGLISH word cards, with the number written in letters. The ENGLISH cards have a blackline frame. To keep costs down, simply print all the cards using just black ink.
PACK 2: this pack features the Roman numeral with a matching digit card. Of course, you can simply mix and match both sets, according to how you and your children want to play!
Play the games regularly for maximum benefit - the’re always really popular, not just at HALLOWEEN! Playing against a timer adds some extra fun - can children beat their own time record?
Print each page out individually and single-sided only, laminate and cut out so that you have 40 single cards per pack - you can see exemplar game cards on the title page. Laminating the cards means you’ll be able to use them in your LATIN classroom for many years to come. I’ve included a reference sheet for children to read through before they play, or refer to as they play. The sheet can be shared between small groups of children, or distributed individually for children to file in their workbooks or learning folders for future reference.
The resource consists of 2 non-editable files in a zipped format. Please
single-teacher/purchaser use only.
