    How to make a Latin notebook for Henle

    I'm having a hard time figuring out how to help my son set up his Latin notebook. Is the grammar notebook the lessons plans refer to on Day 2 different from the Latin notebook part B of Day 4?

    Can we do it all one notebook and maybe make tabs for the different sections?

    Thanks,

    Kelly

    Yes, there is only one notebook that students make. We provide our idea for how to organize it in the introduction, but feel free to organize it however works best for you. Does this answer your question?

      Kelly,
      My kids use a binder with looseleaf paper and section divider tabs. This has been a great way to keep it all organized, and they have used the same binder from one year to the next (they are in year 3 of Book I) and all they have to do is take out their exercises to clean out for a new year. All their other sections continue to build.

        Thank you! The study guide copy I am using is from 2000 and I didn't notice when I read the intro that two pages were stuck together. Of course the page on how to set up the notebook was one of them.

          Awesome! That sounds like a great plan. Each kid has their own binder with pocket dividers for each subject. This will work out great.

            Super! Also, they keep a zippered, mesh/canvas pencil pouch in the front forthe flash cards they make. It is the kind that has three holes also, to fit in the binder.

              Another notebook question:

              There is supposed to be a section for derivatives. Do you just keep a running list or do they need to be organized in some special way?

                There is no special way they have to be organized. You can have one running list or divide it by lesson. It would be helpful for students to note what the Latin root word is, along with the derivatives (e.g. portable comes from porto I carry).

                  I realize this is an old thread, but it's the most recent and relevant that Google would give me.

                  I've read the Teacher Manual notes several times now and I still think I'm missing something regarding the Henle I notebook. There's only 2-3 sentences about the notebook in the TM and it doesn't give specifics.

                  My 9th grade boy struggles with organization, so I need this to be as streamlined and logical as possible!

                  Will it be best for him to use a 3-ring binder and make tabs with:

                  a) Exercises, Grammar Forms, Derivatives

                  OR

                  b) Week 1, Week 2, etc.

                  I'm assuming Option A? Is there another way that would be best?

                  Thanks!

                    Good afternoon Lauren,

                    Yes, I would choose option A. This will allow your son to easily reference all his grammar forms in one location, review derivatives in a second location, and access prior homework in a third. For the additional "lists" mentioned in the Introduction (e.g., uses of the ablative), I would add a fourth tab labeled Syntax or Usage. Does that help?

                      Michael, that helps tremendously. Thank you!

                      I created the notebook a few days ago, and it's worked out very well. I am working through Henle I with my son, so this is my nice and neat notebook. I'll post pictures for anyone else who might find this thread later. Visuals are always helpful to me.

                      (On a side note, Michael, I think you are the same Michael in the office that spoke with me yesterday about my son's Latin progression through High School to get to AP in 12th. My husband, son, and I had a discussion about it yesterday, and your comments helped clear up a lot of questions, and sparked new ones we wouldn't have thought of otherwise. We are really grateful for the guidance and experience you shared. Thank you for your time and willingness to help!)
