    My children love Latin !

    I completed Prima Latina with my 8yo son and 10yo daughter last year. They really enjoyed it and are most excited to begin LC I this year. Having only 2 years of high school Latin some 15yrs ago, I find this curriculum easy to use. It has really enabled my son to accel in language well beyond his current grade level! Now, my question..... after looking over LC I for this fall, I was wondering how imperative the history component Famous Men of Rome is? It looks incredibly interesting, but does not correlate with our history for this year and I am fearful that yet another time line would be confusing. Any suggestions?

    We completed LC I last year (spring of 2004) and are beginning the ancients for the second time (5th grade) this year. Although we were not studying the ancients last year in history, my children knew it was soon to come and were excited to get a peek into next year since they hadn't done much with the ancients for a few years. I'm glad we did it, and they didn't seem to get confused. Of course, we made a point of discussing that it was from a totally different time period and compared the two time periods often, giving them a sense of the length of the timeline. It is often the case that they want to read something from a different time period. Wordly Wise and Spelling Workout have stories from all over the timeline, but I find it okay that they check into the other areas from time to time. We still manage to keep our focus on the correct history time period.

      We have been using LCI for 2 years and did not do any of the History because, like you, it did not correlate with what we were doing in History. There is only so much time in a day, and although it is a great Roman guide, I didn't want to start school at 6 AM to fit it all in! We will use the Roman guide next year, when we are studying Rome. I do not think it has hampered us in any way, as the kids are moving right along with the program.
