Latin at the Creek

We went to the creek again today for school. It was a very hot day so we decided to go down where it might be an itsy bit cooler. It was not but Caleb and Tessa were able to keep cool by taking swim breaks. Every once in awhile they would jump in the creek, swim up and down the shore, then come back to hit the books.

We even did latin while they were swimming. As they were doing laps with their boogie boards, we did our chants.

Amo, amare, amavi, amatum. Amo, amas, amat, amamus, amatis, amant.

Over and over went the chanting with different words. All the while they were swimming up and down the creek.

They had a blast.

    I love it, I love it, I love it! Classical learning while fully engaging body and mind, immersed in Mother Nature. It makes anything fun and memorable! You are so blessed to have that creekside space and so wise to make use of it.

    So how do you say “boogie board” in Latin? 🙂

  2. LOL Well, I know that tabula is board in latin but ya got me with boogie–do not have a clue. 🙂
