I haven't had time to blog lately. That part of my day has been taken up with making Latin flashcards. The girls have some Imaginarium word blocks with the different parts of speech on different colored blocks: red nouns, blue verbs, green adjectives and yellow miscellaneous. I'm using the same system for the flashcards, with yellow prepositions, purple adverbs and white miscellaneous. Hey, they're six and four years old. I want them to think Latin is fun, not difficult.

While the girls are learning Latin, are they also getting steeped in the Roman viewpoint and world view? Inquiring minds want to know.

"Carthago Nintendo est!"
One of the consuls, trying to push them into the First Punic War.

Minimus has a lot of cultural material with it -- it's a Latin comic book about a Roman Britain family. We're steeping ourselves in the Ancient World right now, but we're not up to the Hamurabi yet. Brighteyes has developed a love of all things Roman though.
