Will everyone tell me what their favorite Latin Curriculum is for Home School?  I have a 5th grader and a 2nd grader.

Rosetta Stone WITH Latin for Children.

With Latin for CHildren, the activity book is GREAT!

Wheelock's is great, but it is more for adults, IMO.  It is hard for me. lol

We use Schola Latina.  We  reviewed a lot of differ3ent programs and selected this one because it spread the weekly learning out day by day, it had an emphasis on learning vocabulary that children could use in day to day conversation and it had learning puzzles each week.  A friend who is very serious about Latin, reviewed it and felt that the grammar was presented in an easy to access format.

We have really enjoyed it.  To find on the internet google - Schola Latina.

Blessings!

My 5th grader is enjoying Power Glide Jr . It's a nice introduction and a good way to decide if it is truly an interest or a passing fancy.

My first grader is using Latin's Not So Tough.  It seems to be working well for him.
