Latin for Children & Latina Christiana
Latin for Children vs. Latina Christiana by Kristen. I think that BOTH Latin for Children and Latina Christiana are excellent Latin homeschool curriculum programs with many similarities. Both are designed to be used with students as young as about the third grade. They both teach Latin from a parts-to-whole method.
A Review of Latin for Children by Heidi. There is a lot to learn in this amazing curriculum. I love the discussion of derivatives to boost overall vocabulary. The focus on grammar reinforces concepts like tense that can help with English.
Latin for Children, Primer A by Cindy. Latin For Children, Primer A is the first of three curricula that teach your children Latin – words, pronunciation, conjugation, memorization and eventually reading. It is Biblically based with Bible verses being some points of memorization.
Song School Latin
Song School Latin Review by Amy Maze. A key component of classical education is the study of ancient language, most commonly Latin. Needless to say, I know nothing about Latin. I figured that I would wait a few years and then get my kids a book that they could pretty much teach themselves from. Well, my ideas changed once I heard some other bloggers talking about this neat little program called Song School Latin.
Learning Latin with Song School Latin 2 by Heidi. How I wish we had started learning Latin with Classical Academic Press materials three years ago! When we started homeschooling I had grand plans of teaching my children Latin, but after a lackluster attempt at Latin roots I put my idea on the back burner. Both my children continued asking to please learn a foreign language. Research continued to lead me to Latin and the materials available from Classical Academic Press.
Visual Latin by Tricia. The free lessons you may download and watch will have you hooked on this Latin homeschool curriculum. Watch them with your children only if you want to hear…Laughter. Soon followed by, “Can we watch another?” Then after the second introductory lesson, “Can we watch just one more?”
3 New Ways to Learn with Visual Latin by Tricia. Compass Classroom’s Visual Latin is such a blessing in our homeschool. Visual Latin is our choice for foreign language credit. Check out these time-saving, make-mom’s-day-easier options!
Envision Teaching Latin with Visual Latin by Richele. I never took Latin in school. I have no experience in this subject and quite frankly it is an intimidating subject if you are unfamiliar. Knowing that I decided to homeschool to provide a better education I knew I would have to find away to teach my children Latin. Latin will help build a strong foundation for English. A person who knows Latin will have a firmer grasp on vocabulary and spelling. I had to find a way to teach this subject without fear. Enter Visual Latin. The “visual” was enough for my interest to be peaked.
Memoria Press Latin Homeschool Curriculum
Free Form Latin by Tonia. If you’ve considered adding a Classical flare to your homeschool but found the thought of teaching Latin intimidating, Memoria Press has you covered. With their programs, you can teach Latin from elementary school right on through high school, and even prepare your students for the National Latin Exam.
Lovely Latin: Learning with Memoria Press by Meredith Henning. We like to start our foray into Latin with a very gentle and basic approach beginning with Prima Latina. As one who wasn’t required to take ANY Latin in school, I really enjoy the gentleness of how Prima is presented as it is very basic but, at the same time a disciplined approach.
Prima Latina by Brenda. I highly recommend Prima Latina with the DVD’s to ALL families starting Latin in grades 1-4th. It is a perfect blend of vocabulary and prayers and is an easy introduction into Latin.
Latin Alive! by Kendra. I am totally in love with this curriculum! This curriculum is written specifically to the student. Now I know a lot of curriculum boasts being written to the student and they often are, but I think Latin Alive! has gone the extra mile here.
Latin in the Christian Trivium
Latin in the Christian Trivium by Cindy. Looking for an in-depth, high school course that will provide a strong foundation in Latin grammar? Would it be even better to find one that includes historical background from a Christian perspective, too? You’re in luck! I’ve been blessed to use Latin in the Christian Trivium, Volume I with my high school daughter this year.
Latin in the Christian Trivium by Molly. Enter Latin in the Christian Trivium. I can’t remember how we found this program, but I am so thankful that we did. It is systematic and thorough, rigorous but not overwhelming.

Building Language Latin Stems and Roman Architecture by Mary. Building Language is a Elementary (Level 1) vocabulary study. The book provides an introduction to Latin stems as the root of many English and Spanish words. It uses the ROMAN ARCH as the basis for instruction… the arch serving as the analogy to our language. The arch was built carefully and perfectly, with each stone block playing an important and foundational part.

DuoLingo Review by Kendra Also here is the direct link to learning Latin at Duolingo
Rummy Roots by Mary. This game is teaching my children all about English words through learning their Greek and Latin roots. It is a stress free game that is providing us hours of language learning.
Ernest Watford says
I am looking for the best home school program for Latin the leads to translating Caesar, Cicero, Virgil, Ovid, Catullus, et.al. I’m not concerned whether it utilizes secular or church lessons; I just want my son to learn well enough to translate Classical Latin authors, not just the Vulgate or created Latin. I am a retired HS Latin teacher with 39 years experience (35 in Latin), so I could help him if needed. Is there a best choice available now?
