Latin

Difficile est tenere quae acceperis nisi exerceas - It is difficult to retain what you may have learned unless you should practice it.

- latin proverb

Salvete parents and discipuli!

It is a pleasure to meet you all! My name is Janella Reiswig and this is my first year at Seven Hills. I am looking forward to this year of new experiences and new faces. There will be a lot of learning done on both sides the year by both magistra and discipuli, and I am so excited!

I have just recently returned from teaching EFL (English as a foreign language) in Daegu, South Korea and can't wait to being this chapter of my teaching career. Before Korea, I earned my Bachelors of Art in Classics (both Latin and Greek history/culture/language) at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter Minnesota. Go Gusties! During my time there, I was greatly involved in the Classics department, being president of Eta Sigma Phi, the Classical Honor Society, and having spent a summer in Italy with Princeton's Paideia Program speaking only Latin! I am excited to make Latin a living language in the classrooms and am going to incorporate more storytelling and speaking into this year's curriculum.

 I currently live in Shakopee, spending my time outside of school either painting, sewing, writing on my novel, or planning my next international vacation.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to email  or call me.

K-2 Latin Song Lyrics

We are currently studying unit 2 songs in grades K-2. If you would like to print a copy of those songs, please look under classroom files.


3rd Grade

3rd grade just finished up chapter unum, and is now studying chapter duo! This chapter includes new vocabulary to be mastered, as well as the present tense verb endings. Help your student review these endings by asking them what new song they learned in Latin class is. And if they don't remember...

The present tense endings of the verbs in Latin are easy,

O, S, T, Mus, Tis, Nt - Easy as can be!

I, you, he/she/it, we you, they- Are the endings of the verbs that we say, hey!

The present tense endings of the verbs in Latin are easy,

O, S, T, Mus, Tis, Nt - Easy as can be!

(Sung to the tune of Mickey Mouse Club)


5th Grade

Today we began studying chapter 2 of the Oxford Latin Course (OLC). This means new vocabulary for students to master! Please support your student by helping them review their vocabulary at home. There are also websites available to help with this, such as www.quizlet.com, that can make studying both easier and more fun.
