Has anyone tried this book? I was going to order it from AMAZON but there were a few negative reviews and I just want to make sure my kids will actually take something away from their studies. They are 8,4, and 2. It is mostly for the 8 year old, but it seems that what he does, the others want to join in
For an eight-year-old–she will need, before the end of the book, to be able to understand concepts like direct objects, to be able to make sense of noun cases. She’ll also need to memorize case endings and conjugations. It is a gentle start–but picks up some speed toward the end. If she isn’t handy with direct objects and you don’t think she can learn to tell the difference between nominative, possessive, dative and ablative cases . . . then I’d go with a chant-style program or wait a while.
