    From the author of Latin Centered Curriculum (Memoria Press), this comprehensive K-12 resource for memorization, copywork, and dictation provides a vast array of memorization material in all academic areas, as well as Latin and Greek. Weighing in at a hefty 450 plus pages, this book provides you ample choices for memory work, and has been designed for use with any classical curriculum or simply as a handy reference for home or school. At first glance, the sheer size of this book appears to be overwhelming. However, the author reminds us this book has been created to provide 13 years worth of memorization options and we simply integrate what we feel is the best selection.

    Beginning with the importance of memorizing, this detailed book takes you through the steps of how to memorize and includes general principles to make memory work easier; you are then set free to select memorization selections from a vast array of subject areas. Read on for more details! The Latin chapter is divided into six parts: Grammar and Vocabulary; Proverbs; Poetry and Prose; Scripture; Prayers; and Hymns and Carols. The first three sections contain mostly secular material, while the last three are religious. The Greek chapter is divided into five sections: Grammar and Vocabulary; Proverbs; Poetry and Prose; Scripture; and Prayers and Hymns. These selections are drawn from both classical and ecclesiastical Greek, and the author has also included some background information on Easter Christian traditions. Translations are provided throughout. The Arithmetic and Mathematics chapter includes an extensive resource selection, including (but not limited to): addition/subtraction fact families, properties and orders, prime numbers, multiplication table, Euclid's Definitions and Common Notions, and the Pythagorean Theorem. The Grammar and Composition chapter is designed to support the study of classical languages and to reinforce principles taught in your individual writing program. It includes grammar rhymes, grammar rules, and 100 commonly misspelled words. The Literature chapter contains five sections: Literary facts and lists; Sayings, Proverbs, and Famous Quotations, Teaching Rhymes, Poetry and dramatic speeches from Shakespeare's plays. The Religion chapter contains six sections: Scripture, Prayers, Catechism, Poetry, Hymns and Carols. Using the King James Version of the Bible, the religious selections include material drawn from the Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant traditions. The Geography chapter contains a large number of lists from both a World and US Geography perspective. The World History chapter covers events and personalities from around the globe, with the emphasis on those topics of enduring importance. Please note: dating encompasses an old earth perspective, dating back to 35,000 BC. The United States History and Civics chapter stresses key dates in American history, as well as the founding documents of our nation. Patriotic songs, verse and oratory are also included. The Natural Sciences chapter brings together lists and mnemonics for basic information in the natural sciences and is written primarily for elementary and middle school. It is best if the child memorizes material in this chapter, as it is encountered in their course of studies in the science curriculum of your choice. Extensive reference charts are found at the end of the book. These are meant for quick reference in Latin and Greek and are not meant to replace a Latin or Greek curriculum. They are, however, a good basis for Latin and Greek recitation.

    As you can see, this extensive resource book provides ample opportunities for memorization success. I was impressed with the extensive selection in each academic area, and believe this truly will be a valuable resource for families who desire to incorporate memorization from the classical perspective. 450 pgs, sc. ~ Deanne

    Latina Christiana I is, quite simply, the best Latin grammar course available for younger beginning students. Cheryl Lowes clear explanations, easy instructions, and step-by-step approach have led thousands of teachers and students to declare, I love Latin! With the help of this course, you are sure to love Latin too!

    Students who have completed Latina Christiana I are now ready for the First Form Latin Series. Memoria Press recommends students move directly from Latina Christiana I to First Form.

    Latina Christiana was designed as a beginning course for students of all ages. This course was specifically written for the teacher with no background in Latin.

    There is an optional history component to Latina Christiana I taken from Chapters 1-13 of Famous Men of Rome (reading selections not included in LCI). Drill questions are included in Latina Christiana I, as well as a history test. Learning the history and culture of Rome is often a great motivating factor for students studying the Latin language.

    Subtitled "Beginning Latin for Homeschoolers and Self-Taught Students of Any Age," I could see this book serving as a great introduction to Latin for the family who is not sure they want to jump right into a full-fledged Latin course. Of course, it would be just as useful for an older student (or even Mom and Dad), if they have never studied Latin but want to learn it on their own. The course was designed out of necessity by author William E. Linney, after he was asked by a relative to teach Latin to her children. He set out looking for a course that would not require a Latin teacher, was self-paced, self explanatory, offered lots of practice exercises, was non-threatening, and inexpensive. When he couldn't find a course that suited his needs, he designed this one. The book contains 134 lessons, which are short (usually less than a page in length), un-fluffy, and incremental in progression. Lessons strike a nice balance between introducing new vocabulary, explaining simple grammatical concepts, and memorization of noun and verb forms. No lesson covers all of these tasks, but instead focuses on one objective and covers it well. Lessons that introduce new Latin vocabulary feature a new Latin word, its English meaning, and sometimes a pronunciation tip. This is usually followed by about ten sentences to translate. Lessons on grammar are also bite-sized, and different forms and cases are introduced gradually. As they are introduced, they are added to a chart, and students will translate sentences that use the forms and cases that they have learned. As charts are filled with endings or forms, students may be asked to memorize them, to aid in future lessons. Just for fun, "Latin Expressions" are scattered throughout the book. In each one, the author takes a common Latin phrase like "caveat emptor," or "etc." and explains the Latin history behind each phrase. Don't underestimate how these little "sparks" of knowledge whet your appetite to learn more! By the end of the book, students will have stockpiled basic vocabulary of around 100 words, be comfortable translating simple sentences in Latin, and have a grasp of basic Latin grammar.

    There are a couple of aspects of this course worth noting. First of all, because the book is more of a text than a worktext it is not designed to be consumable. For translation purposes, the author recommends translating the sentences in a separate notebook. If extra practice is desired, you may wish to translate the sentences back to the form given in the lesson. Secondly, while we all realize that pronunciation is very difficult to teach "out of a book", the author has considered this, and has come up with an ingenious solution. He has provided MP3 audio files free of charge on his website, which can be downloaded and used with the lessons. As an added bonus, you can choose from either classical pronunciation or ecclesiastical pronunciation. Audio commentary on the lessons and a host of other helpful resources is also included on the website. Lastly, this course would be excellent prep for an older student who will be studying Latin in high school or college who hasn't had the benefit of laying a basic Latin foundation earlier in life. Upon completion of this book, I think students would be more ready to tackle Lingua Latina, Oxford University Latin, Henle Latin, or Cambridge Latin, than if they were starting off cold. Latina Christiana I or other complete courses designed for younger students could also be considered reasonable continuations, although there would be much more overlap/review between courses. This is a terrific way to get started in Latin and I am glad that the author did not find what he was looking for to teach Latin, because he has certainly written a course that fulfills all of his goals! – Jess

    Designed for children with the skills of a 7-8-year-old in reading, writing and arithmetic, this level continues to build phonics, reading comprehension, spelling and composition, while expanding literary analysis, grammar, and composition skills. Through the lens of American history and embarking on the study of Latin, Christian study is also highlighted through prayer time, memorization and recitation exercises and scripture copywork. Similar to the previous level, flexibility is built in: 4- or 5-day schedule options and suggested enrichment lessons (requires the complementary enrichment guide) on American history, art, music, natural science, general knowledge and culture. Families new to SCC will need to purchase the New User Add-On Kit. If purchasing the Simply Classical Writing Book 2: Read-Aloud Edition, the Level 3 American History Read Aloud Set is required. ~ Deanne
