Our Challenge A class has moved on to studying Adjectives. I wrote a post describing how I am encouraging my Foundations/Essentials kids to copy the Latin charts so they will get ahead of the curve in Challenge A, making them feel more successful. In my class and online, I shared this FREE NOUN CHART, and now wanted to share the ADJECTIVE CHART with you in case you wanted to add a little to your Latin studies.
Similar to nouns, Latin adjectives have declensions, though luckily there are only three of them. When your student memorizes the adjective, they must memorize it with the alternate endings because just like nouns, the ending lets you know which declension it is in.
Adjectives will always match the noun they are modifying in Gender, Number and Case. That doesn’t mean they will be the same declension – each adjective has its own, just like each noun has its own. But if the Noun is a second declension noun, masculine, and being used in the Nominative singular form, your third declension adjective will match the noun by following the masculine, nominative singular form.
That’s a brief overview of adjectives. A few minutes copying a chart each day is unbelievably helpful for both Challenge A kids and younger students planning to move into Challenge A.
I hope this new free resource helps your family!
