Prima Latina is our 4th grade Latin program. It’s a step up from the Latin root memorization from last year, but it’s still basically memorization. My auditory son did fantastic using the CD’s every day, but my daughter prefers to do it all in writing. She listens to the lesson on Monday and does the workbook in lessons with me the rest of the week. Each lesson is two page spreads, and is basically written memory work: facts about Latin, words, phrases.
The work is generally short and sweet, taking only a few mintues a day. My children especially like the “repeat the vocabulary and definition 5 times” exercises. It’s a rhythm game to them.
The teacher’s edition comes with the packet, but I haven’t needed it very much. However, for next year, it’s a necessity.
