Latin Present Tense Verb Endings Chant

tiarastantrums

What is a {latin} tense?

This lesson is on the "present tense". This describes what is happening presently (as in now). There are three ways of translating the present tense into English.

This example is the verb "to carry".

  1. I am carrying
  2. I carry
  3. I do carry

To decide which one to use, simply pick the one that makes the most sense in the sentence. Usually, the first version makes the most sense.

The first few Latin tenses that you learn tend to have the following endings:


LATIN VERBS: THE BASICS

Latin verbs have different rules governing the way they conjugate. For the most part, Latin verbs conjugate by attaching endings to the stems themselves, without all the separate helping words put in front of the stem as in English to tell you how to understand the action.

You must learn two things for Latin verbs: (1) the stems, and (2) how the stems are modified at the ends to show different conditions under which the action is occurring.

Here is the conjugation of the verb "to see" in the present tense in English.

SINGULAR PLURAL

I seewe see
you seeyou see
he, she, it, seesthey see

Here is the Latin translation for the verb English verb "to see" with these modifications.

 LATIN ENGLISH

1st videoI see
2nd videsyou see
3rd videthe/she/it sees

1st videmuswe see
2nd videtisyou see
3rd vident they see

Latin conjugates its verbs by attaching endings to the root of the verb itself. The common feature of the verb "to see" in Latin is the stem "vide-" and to show changes in person and number, Latin adds a suffix. These suffixes are called the "endings", because they indicate the person and the number of the conjugated form of the verb.

HEAVEN Stick book

tiarastantrums

Heaven for Kids, by Randy Alcorn: Teaching my children now about the New Earth, before they develop negative or untrue, ideas about Heaven, is quite important to my husband and I.  We want our children to be excited about meeting Jesus and God and not to have fears or doubts. The book raises all of the questions that kids ask about heaven and answers them with illustrations they can understand.

This book should be a part of every curriculum for children in my opinion. The truths it teaches are timeless and necessary to combat the lies about Heaven and the New Earth that too many Christians start believing when they are young children.

We have been studying Heaven and my daughter has been keeping a little journal called a Heaven stick book.  Each week, she answers questions related to the chapters we read together.  She is learning about a very special place that God is making.

Where relevant, I am including pages from Randy Alcorn’s book, Heaven for Kids, for you to reference if you need to.

Questions for week 1:

page 1 Questions I have about Heaven:

page 2 Sometimes, I am afraid to die because:

page 3 Other times, I am not afraid to die because:

Questions for week 2: (1-5 sentence answers)

page 4             What is the present Heaven? (pp. 36-38)

page 5             What is the future Heaven?  (pp. 36-38)

page 6             Things I hope to ask Jesus:

page 7             When I see Jesus face to face, I think I will feel like this:

Book cover Decorate the cover of your book.  Use Rev. 21:1-22:21 as a reference and color a picture of the New Earth.  Use your imagination and make it as beautiful as you can.  Include a title for your book.  It can be as simple as “Heaven.”

Please use your neatest penmanship and write 1-5 sentences for each answer.  Where relevant, pages from Randy Alcorn’s book, Heaven for Kids, are included for reference.

Questions for week 3: (1-5 sentence answers)

page 8             What I am most looking forward to about Heaven:

page 9             Who will be in Heaven?  (Use your knowledge of the beings in heaven as well as the Book of Life, etc.

page 10           How do you get to go to Heaven?  (pp. 179-184)

page 11           The part of the New Earth that seems most awesome to me is: (Use Rev. 21:1-22:21)

Heaven Diorama

tiarastantrums

Materials needed:

1 shoe box (square is ideal, but rectangular is just fine)

glue

scissors

construction paper

crayons, paint or glitter glue

Other possible materials:

decorative plastic “gems” from the craft store

miniature artificial trees and flowers (unless you make your own out of paper or other materials)

miniature plastic animals

aluminum foil or other shiny paper

popsicle sticks

toothpicks

cotton balls

anything else you can think of to build, enhance and decorate your diorama

Directions:

The goal of this diorama is to create a miniature model of what you think Heaven (New Jerusalem) will look like based on Revelation 21:1-22:5. (Other neat reference to consider for your enhancements: Rev. 4:1-11)

Required elements:

·         Throne of God

·         River of Life

·         Tree of Life

·         Streets of gold

·         Gemmed walls of the city (the walls of the shoe box be your city walls)

·         12 gates of the city (do not need to be able to open them)

Other elements may be added according to your vision and creativity.  Read and reread Rev. 21:1-22:5 and look for as many details as possible.  See what you can reproduce in your diorama. 

May this project be an act of worship as you think about this beautiful place in which our God dwells and where one day we will live with Him forever.

"Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come."

Revelation 4:8
