Level: Form II (4th–6th grades)
Students are introduced to basic Latin vocabulary and culture as they follow the adventures of Minimus the mouse throughout the texts. In the Minimus: Starting Out in Latin text, students will meet Minimus and an actual Roman family that lived in Vindolanda in ancient Britain
Families purchase the student book:
- Minimus: Starting out in Latin book 1
- Three-ring binder with lined paper, pencils, colored pencils, and erasers in a pencil pouch.
Families may wish to supplement at home with the Minimus Audio CD, although the pronunciation will not be the same as what is taught in class. (We will be learning the ecclesiastical pronunciation, while the CD uses the reformed classical pronunciation.)
Our goal this year is to transition to the second book in the series (Minimus Secundus) in the spring, but families are advised to wait to purchase this book until the semester break.
