Grammatical Objectives: To use the new Latin noun case, the ablative To learn the 7 Latin prepositions that trigger an ablative prepositional phrase To deduce the meaning of the 7 Latin ablative prepositions To act out the meanings of the 7 prepositions (TPR) D.

Learner Description: Latin 1 students, 9/10 grade III. Materials: Overheads, projector, color wet-erase markers, warm-up sheets, guided notes packet, timer IV. Activities A. Warm-up (5 mins.): Students work individually to complete warm-up worksheet that highlights today’s grammatical adventure. Teacher will take role while they work. Teacher will pass out the guided notes sheet. As soon as the teacher sees that all students are ready and role is taken, class will begin. B. Input (15 mins.): 1. Students and teacher review the warm-up. 2. After warm-up review, all proceed to take notes on what was encountered during the warm-up. 3. Teacher will “chant” the new case endings and have students repeat. Teacher will also, provide another mnemonic device for remember these endings are the ablative case. 4. Teacher will then act out the 7 ablative prepositions; the students are to deduce the English meanings. When the correct deduction is made, the teacher will instruct the students to write the meaning on the line next to the term. Then utilizing TPR, the teacher and students will act out the 7 ablative prepositions. 5. Teacher will then will guide the students to analyze the prepositional phrases from the warm-up to help them arrive at how these 7 prepositions changed the endings of nouns to the ablative. 6. Teacher will then give more examples on the board using the rule created by the class. C. Guided Practice (5 mins.): Students will be directed to the turn their note pages over to do the first 6 grammatical problems as a class. Teacher will solicit volunteers when doing these 6. (These 6 are similar to the examples used during #6 of the Input.) D. Independent Practices (10 mins.): 1. 3mins will be given to the students for them to individually do the next 6 problems, similar to the guided practice. 2. Students will then get with their partner to compare their results and critique each others attempts. 3. Student volunteers will be called to put their answers on the board. E. Closure (5-8 mins.): Teacher will ask if there are any questions or the need for clarifications. Teacher will also ask questions concerning the new grammatical feature for students to answer as a group. F. Homework: The rest of the worksheet that is labeled: “For homework.” VI. Evaluation: ‘Exit ticket’ that is similar to the grammatical activity they have done from guided practice through independent practice. This will be collected at the door upon leaving, and will be evaluated to form how the next day’s warm-up is constructed.
