Phonics Museum App was created by Veritas Press and is available in the App Store. It is a free app download and requires iOS 9.1 or later to use. It’s made for ages 5 and under but it was a great review for my 9 year old as well. It can be used with iPad or iPhone.
What Is First Form Latin:
First Form Latin is a complete Latin program for learning Latin. This program includes everything needed to learn Latin as a foreign language. First Form uses a Grammar first approach to learning which focuses on teaching Grammar and Vocabulary to young students so they learn the basics as they build through the lessons. First Form Latin and all of the First Form courses are great for students in grades 4-9.

Who and How We Used It:
Since this program was for Emmalee as a prerequisite to her previous lessons from Memoria Press First Form Greek, I handed the box straight to her. Em is a very independent learner and doesn’t like to have her hand held when learning. She always comes to me with questions or any help she needs but generally she’s a figure-it-out-herself kinda girl.
Memoria Press is laid out so well that it’s always extremely easy to follow. Emma had no problems setting her pace with the program, following along with the plans and scheduling already provided by Memoria Press. I was able to help her set up a pace that worked for her (a few lessons at a time, taking as much time as she needed.) She was able to take her time working through her lessons, watching the instructional videos for each lesson through the provided DVD’s. Her favorites are always the pronunciation CD’s which she listens to over and over until she gets the sounds trained in her mind and also the flashcards which she uses along with the Pronunciation CD to better learn what she is reading and listening to.
She completed her worksheets as she went along through the lessons with very little problems. Emma loves a good workbook and Memoria Press materials are always well-laid out and easily followed along. Emma did use some of the quizzes and tests on her own but I never require them as my concentration is never to test her skills but to ensure she’s learning and enjoying the lessons as she goes, which she always does.
Memoria Press First Form Latin was a great fit for Emmalee and she’s very excited this curriculum will count towards her High School Foreign Language requirements. She’s also taught the little ones a few words in both Latin and Greek that she’s learned through both of these curriculum. She looks forward using the other Memoria Press Latin programs in the future as well.

I will be continuing to use this program for myself at this time. I really enjoyed the videos and lessons personally though my children aren’t quite ready for this program. I can see us definitely using it in the future for schoolwork. I personally found the review of American History refreshing and it has helped me remember important details to cover with my children as I teach them American History in the future.
