Reviews - What do customers think about Song School Latin, Teacher's Edition?
Cute but hard to hear Aug 23, 2008
I just got this book and CD, so I'm still getting used to it. But I am a little disappointed in how hard it is to actually hear what they are saying/singing on the CD. The music is too loud for their soft voices. They need a professional vocalist who knows how to project their voice. I know if I am having a hard time hearing their actual words, my kids are as well.
The Silly Silly Chant is my favorite! Jun 14, 2008
Have you heard the Silly Silly Chant yet? If not, you're in for a treat!
Classical Academic Press is at it again...blending wacky humor with academically "lofty" lessons. The result? Primary students lay a foundation of Latin vocabulary upon which future linguistic mastery may be built.
Vocabulary is presented by subject, with a logical flow (greeting words, making friends, family members, people...). I counted 110 Latin words in the student workbook, presented in 30 lessons, with bright colors and playful illustrations sure to inspire your budding scholar. Whereas with Latin for Children (CAP's next level text) offers an activity book separate from the student text, Song School Latin incorporates appealing activities within its lessons.
The song and chant CD simplifies the teacher's job by providing catchy melodies and chants which make memory work nearly painless. Students will discover dramatic delights as they work through the audio tracks, including an assortment of improve-style accents woven through the Silly Silly Chant.
As I've come to expect with CAP, the books are well designed. (Hats-off to Rob Baddorf and David Gustafson for superb illustrations and layout.) Within the student text are chapter-by-chapter and alphabetical glossaries. CD track information is printed inside the cover, with an end-of-the-year crossword puzzle printed inside the back. Both Classical and Ecclesiastical pronunciations are represented (though watch for an errata page on CAP's website for minor corrections). As an added and age-appropriate feature, handwriting practice is also sprinkled throughout the lessons.
Overall, this program makes a pleasing presentation of Latin for our youngest scholars.
