    Order of paradigms

    I'm thinking of using LC1 for my 4th grader and my 8th grader is using Artes Latinae. I would like them to do the chants for the endings together. So what is the order of the paradigms? For AL, it's nom,acc, abl, dat, gen.
    TIA,

    Order of Paradigms

    TIA,

    We use a different order that AL. Ours is: Nom, Gen, Dat, Acc, Abl. We use this order for several reasons:

    1) It is by far the more common order used in language study
    2) It is the traditional way of ordering the cases
    3) The Romans themselves used this order

    These reasons make the order we use much more conventional. That doesn't mean that there is one right way of doing this, and the most important consideration is that you pick one way and stick with it to avoid confusion.
