(I especially enjoy this fact when I erase a subject off the white board and a child goes "I can still see that!!" trying to tease me that they're going to be able to cheat at review time, knowing full well they can't read it, so the squiggles on the board aren't going to help!)
This makes Latin especially hard, in my book. It's not really useful information to most of them. So far the biggest breakthrough on Latin we had was when I brought in a penny to show them "E Pluribus Unum". "From Many, One", look! From is a preposition, and many belongs to it! I got so excited and they all stared at me and were very sweetly trying to indulge my excitement at making Latin relate to their lives.
Anyhow, for the second semester of Cycle 1, I wanted something useful to make the Latin at least be multi-sensory. I tried tracing sheets the first semester, but that took some of our younger abecedarians far too long, where our older ones were done in a split second (the spread in my class is ages 3-6). So, one day while perusing the Dollar Tree (whoot!) I found cookie sheets and became inspired. We could practice the Latin Noun Cases each week, and then fill in the chart using magnets!
Sweet! So, I color coded the noun cases:
For the magnet board, you'll need:
Found it! You can use the extra inch to write your labels. (Noun Case, Part of the Sentence, Singluar, Plural). Originally I was going to write vertically so it was obvious which way the board was to be oriented, but I thought that would be hard for my Abecedarians to read, so I switched it. It hurt my desire for "Things To Look A Certain Way", but I know it'll be more useful for them.
