ICL Practicum Packet 2021-final
These parsing worksheets are a wonderful tool for grammar review that are adaptable to any curriculum or any reading.
Verbs: Teachers should pre-fill the first column with various verbs in a variety of forms. These may come from a chapter vocabulary list or drawn from a reading passage. Students then complete the remaining columns. As a twist, teachers may fill the far right column with the English meaning and ask the students to work backwards. Or, split the difference for half Latin-English and half English-Latin. When it’s time to review, consider using a little active Latin approach.
Nouns: This worksheet works best tied to a reading. Notice the second column provides a space for line number. Direct the students to a specific word used in a specific context. This will require them to discern among the varying options a form like puellae presents.
These worksheets are a great way to drill forms. They work even better when you allow students to vary a little color between the stem and the ending. This becomes a visual teaching tool as students must consider where to stop the stem and reach for a new color for the ending. Plus what student does not LOVE using colored pencils! Even the high school students like the colored mix.
Nouns: Select a series of nouns either from a chapter in your chosen curriculum, or from a reading. Instruct them to decline the noun with attention to case, number, and gender. As students progress, mix up the declensions and genders not only to help them review, but to see similarities between the charts.
Verbs: In addition to reviewing vocabulary, this worksheet is a great tool to review tense, mood, and voice – in all the combinations. Teachers may choose to assign one combo (e.g. present, active, indicative) across all conjugations (including 3rd -io and irregular). As students advance, teachers may mix up the combinations for a single conjugation to review the patterns for that conjugation. Or, go crazy and review multiple forms across many conjugations.

Karen Moore took videos of her students playing two games, Boggle and Mendax (like cheat). Check them out here!
I was at this practicum. It introduced a new way of teaching Latin.
I’d like to get these worksheets that are in this document but they don’t open.
Hi Rachael, those links are fixed now! Sorry about that!
