Classical Academic Press now has Song School Latin for K-2 graders (they need to be able to read and write to use the workbook). They are the ones we got Latin for Children from. She loved learning Latin until we got to about 100 or so words and hit the irregular ones, so we dropped it. She was really excited about Song School Latin, which, amusingly, has a lot of what could be considered conversational Latin - if you could have a conversation with someone who speaks Latin that is. On the way home the kids wanted us to put in the CD it came with and Cameron absolutely loved it and kept picking out words and telling us what they meant (they are all defined in the songs). Ani used the workbook to sing along since the text is in there. Fritz even kept trying to copy the words!

They are coming out soon with Song School Greek (also for K-2, coming out next month), Greek Alphabet Code Cracker (for any age to learn the letters in the Greek alphabet and the sounds they make, good companion for Song School Greek), Greek for Children (grade 3+), and Spanish for Children (grade 3+, coming out next month). They also have lots of other stuff in production.

The Krafty Kid had a booth and they have kits with 10 crafts in each themed pack. The packs are $25 each. We let our kids just pick two for fun (they got dinosaurs and oceans). We may get the ancient civilizations pack (actually two so they can both do all the crafts) since that's what we're learning in school this year. The packs come with everything you need except scissors. Ani's been begging to do arts and crafts with me and I am rather low on ideas for their age so hopefully they'll like making these things.

I'm reallly glad they like the Song School stuff. It sounds neat and what a great way to get the kids to remember the stuff.

It sounds like you had a great time! I'm glad the kids were able to pick out some things too.

Those things look really cool. I love it that your kids were just as excited as you to get the stuff.
