Latin Vocabulary Bundle

As part of a classical curriculum, we began teaching our children Latin from an early age.  Latin is the foundation of many world languages, including our own English.  For us, it seemed a natural progression from phonics to Latin, and the results are already beginning to show themselves in our children's vocabulary and word discovery...

Reasons to Teach Latin
  • English Vocabulary  About 60% of English words derive from Latin, and more than 90% of multi-syllabic English words have a Latin root!  All of that "scientific mumbo jumbo" is either Latin or Greek.  Learn it and empower yourself and your children!
  • Foreign Language    If you want to learn or teach Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese or any of the Romance languages, a Latin background will be immensely helpful.  The vocabulary and grammatical structures all derive from Latin.
  • Test Scores    Not my favorite topic, but a background in Latin has been proven to increase verbal, analytic, and problem solving scores.
  • There are many more reasons, but these three alone are enough for us!!  What's your reason for choosing Latin (or another language)?

To help the children have a more visual understanding of their Latin vocabulary, we created these flash card sets for daily use words.  Each set can be used as flash cards, or as a memory game (match the word to the picture).  We also use a daily calendar, to practice days / months / seasons / weather words.  You'd be surprised at how much more they will retain from this hands-on use!!!

Check out our new Latin bundle, which includes a daily calendar and vocabulary flash cards for nine different sets of daily use words!

  • Months / Days
  • Weather / Seasons
  • Body Parts / Senses
  • Colors
  • Numbers
