I can't believe that the month of January is over! I have been working hard...and having fun at it; time has flown by so quickly. Here are two illustrations I have done for my Latin class students to color. These go with particular vocabulary lists: gladius, sword; nuntius, messenger; mare, sea; nāvis, ship, etc. I have had them labeling things, making sentences, and coloring the pictures. I think it has been an enjoyable change of pace for all involved. I am constantly trying to get more comprehension and retention. I really need some very very easy Latin readers similar to Dick and Jane: Marcus and Horatia, perhaps!

The very competitive and highly motivated child, the kind you hope to have in every class, is able to label over 30 Latin nouns and verbs in each picture. They were even asking for dictionaries in one class trying to see who could get the most!
