Yet, this program manages to do both! Classical Academic Press quickly became a respected source for quality Latin programs with their Latin for Children series, and this introductory course reflects their solid reputation. The songs are catchy, easy to memorize and even enjoyable for the educator (a big plus!) and the material is fun, engaging and creates a genuine excitement for the material. Unlike some Latin programs we have tried, this one is not a dull, boring, "sit quietly at your desk" type program. My children cut, color, sing and chant their way into Latin. Best yet, the material actually sticks! We have been blown away at the vast amount of information they have retained with this program, especially when the kids thought they were just having fun! It is a gentle, but extremely thorough introduction to the subject, and one that is approachable by any educator, both at home and in the classroom. Quite honestly, it is the best we have seen thus far; I highly recommend it!
One note -- I bought the teacher's manual along with this book and have found it to be unnecessary. I wouldn't buy it again.
Classical Academic Press is at it again...blending wacky humor with academically "lofty" lessons. The result? Primary students lay a foundation of Latin vocabulary upon which future linguistic mastery may be built.
Vocabulary is presented by subject, with a logical flow (greeting words, making friends, family members, people...). I counted 110 Latin words in the student workbook, presented in 30 lessons, with bright colors and playful illustrations sure to inspire your budding scholar. Whereas with Latin for Children (CAP's next level text) offers an activity book separate from the student text, Song School Latin incorporates appealing activities within its lessons.
The song and chant CD simplifies the teacher's job by providing catchy melodies and chants which make memory work nearly painless. Students will discover dramatic delights as they work through the audio tracks, including an assortment of improve-style accents woven through the Silly Silly Chant.
As I've come to expect with CAP, the books are well designed. (Hats-off to Rob Baddorf and David Gustafson for superb illustrations and layout.) Within the student text are chapter-by-chapter and alphabetical glossaries. CD track information is printed inside the cover, with an end-of-the-year crossword puzzle printed inside the back. Both Classical and Ecclesiastical pronunciations are represented (though watch for an errata page on CAP's website for minor corrections). As an added and age-appropriate feature, handwriting practice is also sprinkled throughout the lessons.
Overall, this program makes a pleasing presentation of Latin for our youngest scholars.

It's a fun way to begin learning Latin. The songs are catchy. Even though it says it is for younger kids, you can use it with older kids too. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Kindle Customer
My kids hated the CD. It is the same music to every song. Very low quality like it was made on a tape recorder. I bought the DVD and I hope it is a lot better than the CD. Read morePublished 7 months ago by PolyGlot
Very easy to use. My boys seem to like this and are learning. It is very basic. I do think it would be better if the cd had the correct way to pronounce the words in Latin before... Read morePublished 7 months ago by Kindle Customer
