Latin for Children Primer B (Student Edition)


  • A yearlong course for students in grades 5-7


    Don't stop now! Latin for Children Primer B Program, the second book in the award-winning Latin for Children series, is just as engaging, incremental, and creative as Latin for Children Primer A Program. In Latin for Children Primer B (Student Edition), 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.

    What's in the New Revised Edition?
    Latin for Children Primer B
    , now printed in full color, has been enhanced with beautiful illustrations as well as images and paintings from medieval European culture. A medieval adventure story, Seeking Donum, has also been added. Students will continue to follow Marcus and Julia—this time as they try to escape from a sinking ship and make their way back home to safety through an unknown land full of dangers and surprises. The chapter-by-chapter Latin grammar sequence 
    remains the same as previous versions. Students will love studying Latin even more as they use this newly revised and improved edition.

    Aaron G. Larsen DA

    Currently teaching history, Latin, logic, and rhetoric at Regents School of Charlottesville in Virginia, Aaron Larsen previously taught at two classical schools in Pennsylvania. In 2001, Dr. Larsen joined a team led by Dr. Christopher Perrin and two other colleagues to help form Classical Academic Press. The motivation behind this endeavor was to produce exceptional Latin and logic curricula for the classical education movement. The first results of this collaboration included the publication of their logic text, The Art of Argument, and the three-volume Latin for Children series. Dr. Larsen is also a coauthor of The Discovery of Deduction: An Introduction to Formal Logic and The Curious Historian series. He earned a BA in history, with minors in philosophy and education, from Covenant College in Georgia. He completed his coursework for his DA in modern world history from St. John's University in New York and went on to write his doctoral thesis on the Meiji Restoration, which, as he likes to say, is “the most important event in world history that nobody’s ever heard of.”
