Fun facts on the Ancient Romans

Fun facts on the Ancient Romans

This powerpoint presentation includes 20 fun, not very well-known facts on the Ancient Romans, on topics ranging from daily life to mythological tales. Perfect for starting off a lesson on Rome as a fun introduction to get the students’ interested. Each slide includes notes with further explanation, so that you as a teacher can introduce the fun fact with a bit more of a background story or answer students’ questions that may come up. These facts are carefully selected to trigger students’ curiosity, and will save you as a teacher lots of time in selecting and preparing! I start every Latin or history lesson with a fun fact like this, and my students love it.

PRIMARY LATIN NUMBERS ROMAN NUMERALS 1-20 FLASHCARDS POSTERS

CREATE AN INSTANT INTRODUCTION TO ROMAN NUMERALS AND NUMBERS IN LATIN IN YOUR CLASSROOM - PERFECT FOR READING AND SPEAKING PROMPTS TOO! These LATIN numbers and ROMAN NUMERALS display posters create a fabulous LATIN feel to your classroom. Using flashcards to introduce and practise language is a really successful teaching and learning activity. Giving your learning environment LATIN ’look’ also promotes LATIN as a ’real’ language, featuring in the everyday life of the school. The posters introduce learners to NUMBERS 1-20 in LATIN from the very beginning of their learning, and they are able to familiarise themselves with both the ‘look’ of LATIN words, and how they are represented in the written form. Additionally, they provide an opportunity to engage with ROMAN NUMERALS, which is also great for some cross-curricular activities with maths! The posters work well with older students in their first LATIN lessons too! I've also included a B&W version if you prefer not to print in colour.

PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING AND PRACTISING LANGUAGE SKILLS IN LATIN! LATIN EASTER BUNNY ANIMALS GAMES CARDS are perfect for young and beginning learners of LATIN. They provide lots of opportunities to learn a range of animals, both masculine and feminine, and really do help to create a lively language learning environment. Children can develop their skills in word recognition and recall, speaking, listening and reading in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, independently of the teacher. They’re a great way of introducing the concept of gender, and of looking at the differences in how determiners function in LATIN too. It doesn’t matter is any of the animals don’t feature in your immediate or even longer-term learning plan: the card games encourage children to engage happily and confidently with LATIN, to identify cognates and to develop spelling skills in LATIN. They also help learners begin to work out the meaning of unknown words using visual clues and prompts. Along the way, children may even get to know some new animals! There are 80 cards in total, which include 2 decks of 40 cards to enable you to differentiate your games: - purple bunny cards with the word written out in full in LATIN, as well as the picture prompt. - blackline bunny cards with the word written out in full in ENGLISH, as well as the picture prompt - blackline bunny cards with the picture prompt only - purple bunny cards with the word written out in full in LATIN - this is really useful for word recognition & recall The animals featured are: - bee - bird - cat - dog - duck - elephant - fish - fox - frog - giraffe - lion - monkey - mouse - parrot - rabbit - snake - spider - tiger - tortoise/turtle - zebra I've suggested a range of really successful and popular games to play - play them games as often as possible around EASTER TIME for maximum benefit - the EASTER BUNNIES are always really popular with little learners! Playing against a timer adds some extra fun! Laminate the cards for longevity - you will be able to play the EASTER BUNNY games for many EASTERTIMES to come! Older learners embarking on their LATIN journey really enjoy the games too! The resource consists of a single, non-editable pdf file.

PRIMARY LATIN - 48 LOOK, READ, LABEL & LEARN POSTERS (1) WITH READING ACTIVITY

NEWLY-REVISED AND UPDATED RESOURCE COMING SOON! CREATE AN INSTANT INTRODUCTION TO PRIMARY LATIN IN YOUR CLASSROOM WITH THIS SET OF 48 LOOK, READ, LABEL AND LEARN POSTERS FEATURING 21 ESSENTIAL PRIMARY LATIN WORDS! NEWLY-REVISED AND UPDATED RESOURCE COMING SOON! PERFECT FOR YOUNG LEARNERS OF LATIN: LATIN STARTER VOCABULARY (1) READ, LABEL AND LEARN, with Whole-group Practice Activity features 21 high-frequency words in LATIN, and includes a range of genders/declensions with nouns in both the singular and plural. The posters introduce children to the ‘look’ of LATIN from the very beginning of their learning, providing them with multi-skill learning opportunities: reading, spelling and, listening, as well as engaging with basic writing to develop their confidence in LATIN. It doesn’t matter if some of the words don’t feature in your immediate or even longer-term learning plan: the learning display provides children with daily opportunities to engage with the written word in LATIN, to develop their recognition and recall of individual words and cognates, and to begin to link the roots of ENGLISH words from LATIN ones. It also helps them to begin to work out meanings of new or ‘unknown’ words from visual clues. Creating a LATIN ‘look’ and ‘feel’ to your classroom and school corridors also promotes LATIN as a ‘real’ language, featuring in the everyday life of the school. Children enjoy honing their artistic and design skills by selecting their favourite WOW word to colour, label and decorate - this is also a great opportunity to work with bilingual dictionaries. Children also have the additional challenge of writing the correct LATIN words in their best handwriting, and love to see their work celebrated on classroom and school walls. Introduce and practice the words with the practice activity, encouraging children to repeat the words several times: embedding vocabulary in the longer-term memory is something that does require a lot of frequent and regular practice, so practice as often as you can across both a short and longer-term series of lesson, and the entire school year. There are six non-editable files in this resource: FILE 1: The Design and Display posters, with gender FILE 2: The Design and Display posters without gender FILE 3: The whole-group introduction/practice activity, with gender FILE 4: The whole-group introduction/practice activity, with gender, in pdf format that your students can use on a tablet or similar device for independent learning - this is really useful if you’re homeschooling too.
