PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING LATIN LANGUAGE SKILLS AS WELL AS PRACTICING AND REVISING 99 ESSENTIAL LATIN VERBS!
This set of games and activities featuring 99 high-frequency LATIN verbs offers an interactive and communicative alternative to 'traditional' vocabulary and grammar drilling activities, and really does help to create a lively and multi-skill language learning environment.
The LATIN-English alphabetical reference list of all 99 verbs in the infinitive form, with the first person singular conjugated, works well as a learning support resource. The cards are versatile, and can be used for a number of language learning games; I’ve described several games you can play and ways you can use them in the classroom. They're great for a ready-made quick vocab quiz too! The game card template lets your students put their knowledge of LATIN verbs to the test as they create cards for each other - preferably from memory!
There are 3 differentiated RECALL AND WRITE CHALLENGES:
Students recall and write all the verbs in English from a LATIN prompt - the LATIN verbs are in alphabetical order
Students recall and write all the verbs in English from a LATIN prompt, with the verbs appearing in random, rather than alphabetical order
Students recall and write all the verbs, including the conjugation of the first person singular, in LATIN from an English prompt - this really does put their knowledge to the test and is great for practising spelling in LATIN too.
I've classed the set as suitable for Grades 7-12, because it really does depend on when your students begin LATIN, the level they are currently working at, and the level they are aspiring to. The games and activities are particularly useful as students prepare for examinations, and for the transition period between learning stages. The REFERENCE, RECALL AND WRITE workbook has 18 pages, and is best photocopied double-sided, and double-stapled in workbook format for students to work through either in direct class time, or as independent learning at home. Encourage your students to complete the NOTES AND NEXT STEPS TEMPLATE to help them reflect on their learning, and to set progress targets.
