sorry for being a ninny, but I don't understand your story.

Can you explain it to me? :D

Minimus is a early elementary Latin curriculum: http://www.minimus-etc.co.uk/ It has a minimum of worksheets, with the advice to "make your own". That's what I'm doing. I'm making a crude worksheet generator. It's linked on the top left.

oooOOOoooh, now I get it. It sounds tempting...which is another way of saying *I'd* like to try it, but I doubt I could persuade my kid. (Not right now, anyway) But I'm hopeful.

Good luck to you. Carpe diem and all that. :)

Hey, it's fun for kids. It's frontloaded with all sorts of kid bait, like a comic book format and plenty of activities. They put those in instead of the worksheets.
