Elementa Student Textbook
The Elementa textbook is a curriculum that offers elementary and middle schools the opportunity to incorporate Latin into literacy instruction. Active learning materials and scripted lessons make the Elementa curriculum fun, engaging, and simple to use. Check out the first chapter here!
Through Elementa, we teach the basics of Latin grammar and vocabulary in such a way that Latin provides students with the tools to improve their mastery of English and Spanish (and other languages!), but an equally crucial goal of the curriculum is to expose students to Roman culture and inspire their curiosity for the ancient world at large.
Elementa can be used by teachers of all backgrounds regardless of their previous experience with Latin. The curriculum is flexible and easy to implement in a variety of contexts. The textbook is accompanied by a suite of complementary materials, available here.
NB: We are currently getting ready to release a second edition of our textbook, so only a handful of first edition copies are available. If you need more books, we recommend the Elementa Student Workbook (same material as the textbook, just in a consumable format) and you can check out the digital Elementa textbook at online.paideiainstitute.org. Please email us for more information on the newest digital resources available.
