Latin I > Week XIII

start up: 8.1 worksheet (only #3, 6, 7, 9)
As we go through answers, fill out model sentences on board (leaving basically only Acc. pl. blank)... students copy into notes.
with all four questions reviewed, talk about ACC. PLURAL...
BASIC RULE is SAME as ENGLISH... how do you make a word plural?  Add -s.... same here: -AS, -OS, -ES (note the vowel change in 2nd declension)
Fill in model sentences and have the students look at the numbers we skipped on 8.1... go through quickly and ask them to ID the acc. pl. word, then what declension it is.

1a. ancilla statuam amat.
1b. ancillae statuas amant.
2a. amicus anulum amabat.
2b. amici anulos amabant.
3a. mater infantem amavit.
3b. matres infantes amaverunt.

Brainhoney Quiz: "Sentence Completion"

Start Up: most missed (use model sentences on board)
write dies natalis, viginti, retiarius, bestiarius, murmillo, bestia, nuntiat, edit, celebrat on board... create 2 sentences using these words (use one more word not on list in each sentence if needed)
discuss vocab
"gladiatores" - review 1st half from yesterday with comprehension questions and finish story with same questions
study (vocab. through "nuntius," deriv. from Ex. B p. 139, and NEW model sentences)

Start Up: clear desk 
when done, read "in arena" and answer 1. Who won the fight?  2. How did they win?  Give a basic summary of the fight.
Allow students time to read the story and answer the questions, then ask for people who really know what is going on.
Bring four of them up to the front of the room and make 2 retiarii and 2 murmillones
divide the class into Pompeiani and Nucerini, pick a Regulus
read the story out loud and everyone must react/act out what is being read (give the actors simple (but accurate) props and prep them on how they would hold them and how each kind of gladiator would fight)
when done answer these nine questions (the answer is either murmillones or retiarii):
1. qui Pompeianos delectabant?    2. qui Nucerinos delectabant?    3. qui erant expediti?   4. in sententia Pompeianorum, qui erant ignavi?    5. in sententia Nucerinorum, qui erant callidi?   6. in sententia Nucerinorum, qui decipiunt?    7. qui frustra provocaverunt?    8. qui erant victores?    9. qui erant mortui?
Why would the retiarii be described as cowards or clever or deceitful?
