Today’s podcast is sponsored by Classical Academic Press creator of our favorite Latin programs. The boys use Song School Latin, which is fun, gentle introduction to Latin vocabulary using words relevant to a kid’s life.
My 9yo daughter Olivia and I have just started using Latin For Children Level A. While the DVD teacher is my favorite part of the program, I think Olivia’s favorite part would definitely be Headventureland.com with its creative online games and videos.
