This was ANOTHER Latinteach post (2 posts, actually) from the beginning of the week.

***
Oerberg's Lingua Latina has the alphabet, and I turned it into a bookmarker. The bookmarker can be found midway down this page: http://www.txclassics.org/drippinglatinclasses.htm.

One year I had students make a cootie catcher/fortune teller, had them write out the names of colors on the outside, have Roman numerals on the inside, and then a motto underneath. To "move" the first turn, when a person picked a number, the student had to spell it IN LATIN/with LATIN PRONUNCIATION.

When I'm bored, I've been known to spell words on billboards outloud in Latin. Yes, people look at me funny but people look at me funny all the time.

[And then I added this:]
p.s. Er, I also have taught the alphabet with the Barney "I Love You" song....

(cap letters for long vowels)

A, bE, cE
dE, E, ef
gE, hA, I, cA
el, em, en
O-pE-cU (fast together)
er, es, tE
U ix ypsIlon
zEta now our song is done!

If you aren't used to the Roman alphabet, play with it. Spell words outloud, etc.
