Exercises A, B, C - For these exercises, I should consider making a sheet of reference for Mara to glance at to prevent frustrations. She will be taking English sentences and translating the idea into Latin; this is not a new concept but the format is a bit more formal than what she has been used to in previous exercises. If it proves not to have enough challenge for her, I can always take away the reference element.
This is a very busy week of visitors, with that said, and if time allows it would be nice to get into this first bit of Chapter 9. Introduce the concept of "predicate nominative" so that next week's lesson we can go into the Latin side with Chapter 10 by mid-week.
History - Chapter 36: The Birth of Christ - Timeline picture
Q&A for Chapter Review:
We can read about Jesus in the four books of the Bible called the Gospels. Many people celebrate the birth of Jesus on Christmas day. The people who followed Jesus became known as Christians. Jesus was born in an area called Judea which was once known as Jerusalem. Mary was the mother of Jesus. The Gospel of Luke says that after Jesus died, he was put into a tomb, and after 3 days he came back to life. The years after Jesus' birth are called A.D. which means in the year of our Lord in Latin.
