In a previous post, I talked about the verbal cues I give my CC students to help them remember what Latin conjugation list goes with what tense. Another way I introduce and review this information is to have them write it out on a chart. Part of the reason is because I know not all students learn best verbally, so having them write it out each week will benefit those children. But perhaps the most important reason is I do this is that Latin is not a spoken language. As they move into Challenge, they will need these conjugation charts memorized in order to help them when they begin to really work with Latin. It’s not super helpful if they think future perfect tense, singular first person is “arrow”. They need to know that although it sounds like that, it’s actually written “ero”. It’s helpful to have practice writing it correctly, as well as looking at it written while they sing the song.
