Latin for Children Primer B Program



A yearlong course for students in grades 5-7

Don’t stop now! Latin for Children Primer B Program, the second program in the Latin for Children series, is just as engaging, incremental, and creative as Latin for Children Primer A Program.

Full program includes:

  • Latin for Children Primer B (consumable student edition and workbook) Students will learn new grammar concepts, Latin numbers, and much new vocabulary. Exercises, tests, and a useful reference section are also included. Lessons include a plethora of mnemonic aids (songs, chants) that enable students to learn vocabulary and grammar with ease and delight.
  • Latin for Children Primer B Answer Key This teacher’s tool features actual, full-size pages from the primer, with answers to quizzes, exercises, and worksheets in bold print.
  • Latin for Children Primer B Streaming Video & Audio (or 2-DVD & 2-CD Set) The Latin for Children Primer B video offers valuable training by author Dr. Perrin along with two students. Each 15-minute-average lesson corresponds to the weekly chapter in the primer and features the chanting and singing of vocabulary, including noun declensions and verb conjugations, and clear grammatical explanations. The text from the book appears on the screen as the material is presented, making it easy to follow along. The audio files capture Dr. Perrin and his students pronouncing and rhythmically repeating each grammar chart and vocabulary word in the primer—first the Latin, then the English equivalent. They contain all 240 vocabulary words chanted and sung in both the classical and ecclesiastical pronunciations. Take them wherever you go! The streaming option provides the convenience of instant access, as well as desktop, smart TV, and mobile viewing capabilities. Streaming access lasts for the life of the product.
  • Latin for Children Primer B Activity Book! (consumable) Following the chapters of Latin for Children Primer B, students explore a mad scientist’s lab, help little Billy find his way home, drill for oil, solve puzzles, aid the Three Musketeers, go pearl diving, fish for stars, hunt for submarine wolf packs, work on the chain gang, search for pirate treasure, and more—all while learning Latin! Includes the reproducible group and solitaire game RetroSpecto™ and a Whopper Crossword Poster.
  • Latin for Children Primer B History Reader (consumable) Young Latin students can begin to translate and read a selection of simple Latin stories at their own level. The stories are integrated with the grammar and vocabulary of Latin for Children Primer B, correspond with the Veritas Press History Card series, and feature stories of the Middle Ages.
