ELEMENTARY LATIN NUMBERS - these Elementary Latin Numbers 1-20 task cards are perfect for young learners of Latin, and really do help to create a lively language learning environment. Students can develop, embed, reinforce and refresh their knowledge of Latin numbers in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, independently of the teacher - even my younger learners really do enjoy working and learning together in pairs or small groups. The cards have a bonus multi-skill focus on listening, speaking, reading and spelling. They’re great for helping students familiarize themselves with, and develop competence in, speaking, reading, writing and spelling in Latin in general, and certainly in Latin numbers in particular. The cards are useful not only when you’re focusing on Latin Numbers 0-20, but also as an all-year-round starter, plenary and general ‘pick-me-up’ activity, as the goal is not simply to learn how to count in Latin, but also to enjoy working with Latin, and to feel confident about doing so - I have various sets of these kinds of activities ready in folders for students to select during our 'free-choice' time, and they're really popular.
The questions range in complexity and challenge, and are great for honing numeracy skills too - especially if calculators are not allowed! I’ve used English language mathematical symbols because learners are familiar with these, and are able to access and engage with the questions straightaway.
The resource comprises the following non-editable files in a zipped format:
* Set of 36 question cards, 4 per A4 (8.5 x 11) paper. Print, laminate and cut out. Depending on how long you want the activity to last for, choose a particular number of cards per small group of students, and place them in a tin, bowl or small box so that students can easily select a card, and then replace when they have answered the question. You can simply place all the cards in the bowl/box and let students work their way through, either in a single lesson, or across a series of lessons. Students do need to remember to file their recording sheets carefully! Color & B&W
* answer recording sheet
* answer key, laminate for longevity - one answer key for each small group is sufficient.
* 4 question cards template for students to apply their knowledge practically, and to
create questions for each other - this is a really challenging and popular activity!
* Number reference sheet which students really useful as a learning support resource - it’s great as a year-round resource too, which they can put into their learning files/folders to call upon whenever they need it
