Item description for Latin for Children A, DVD & Chant CD Set (Latin For Children Primer) by Classical Academic Press...
Imagine having an experienced Latin teacher walk right into your home and sit down to teach your students. With this DVD set, your students will be receiving just that kind of one-on-one learning experience. They will love learning with author Dr. Christopher Perrin and his Latin students on the Latin for Children, A DVD set. Clear, whiteboard grammar lessons are given by Dr. Perrin from his cozy office, and the student-led Memory Page, complete with motions and songs, is chanted in front of a big stone fireplace. Pronunciation will become a breeze and don't be surprised to hear even your youngest children picking up the catchy chants and songs.
What is a Chant CD?
The chant CD, included with all three DVD sets (Primer A, B, & C), is an audio CD that contains Dr. Perrin and his students pronouncing and rhythmically repeating each grammar chart and vocabulary word in the Primer, first the Latin, then the English equivalent. It is an incredible tool to use for fun memorization. Take it anywhere you go!
Each lesson (average twenty minutes per lesson) corresponds to the weekly chapter in Latin for Children, Primer A [Textbook], and features the chanting and singing of vocabulary and paradigms along with clear grammatical explanations by Dr. Perrin. The actual text from the book appears on the screen as the material is presented, making it easy to follow along.

Chapter by chapter (32 chapters) guidance and teaching.

Reviews - What do customers think about Latin for Children A, DVD & Chant CD Set?
Awesome product! Sep 12, 2009
We started out with the books only, but decided to get the DVD's since this was our first year and wanted to make sure the pronunciation was correct. So glad we did! Hearing the chants and seeing the movements used to enforce the learning is incredibly helpful! Great set!
Introduction to Latin blended with comic relief :) Jun 5, 2008
When we researched Latin curricula for our classical home school co-op, we appreciated the Latin for Children Primer "A" Bundle for a variety of reasons. The entry-level lessons are designed for students 3rd grade and older (our Latin students range from 4th-12th grade). The deluxe bundle--which includes a student primer, answer key, history reader, activity book, chant CD and DVD instruction set--aims to equip students with a basic vocabulary and understanding of the grammar and logic of Latin.
The curriculum is appropriate for both a co-op and home school setting. The writers wisely aligned their text with Shurley Grammar's format. Thanks to the DVD lessons, a parent or teacher can learn alongside students, though ideally the instructor should stay several lessons ahead of the class.
Although academically challenging, this package brings silliness and fun to the rigorous study of Latin through Dr. Perrin's dry humor and whimsical wit, as well as through goofy skits sprinkled throughout the DVD lessons (reminiscent of a family-friendly Monty Python).
That playful spirit likewise romps through the pages of games and puzzles contained in the activity book.
Plan to visit the errata page on the Classical Academic Press website as there are corrections to the text noted there. (These errors can be a burden to the novice teacher, but, fortunately, the editors are quite responsive to user feedback and diligently post corrections and incorporate changes and corrections in updated editions.) Once there, you will also find many freebies, including downloadable flashcards and worksheets.
In our opinion, the greatest strength of this program is how strongly it appeals to kids--and that's a huge plus when seeking to capture and focus the attention of entry-level Latin students.
