    Are there any textbooks for teaching ecclesiastical Latin to elementary school children?
  • PM me. We've homeschooled our children.

    Do those resources teach ecclesiastical Latin? I think they may be different.

    francis - in the Prima set, it seems a good start to me :
    Four prayers: Sanctus, Doxology, Table Blessing, and Pater Noster
    Four Lingua Angelica songs:
    Dona Nobis Pacem, Chirstus Vincit, Adeste Fideles, and Resonet in Laudibus

    OK... wasn't sure. Us homeschoolers use those, but I did not know if they used EL.

    @Kathy thanks. I forgot about them. They have a good logic textbook series.

    Depending on your children, you might want to consider Hans Ørberg's Lingua Latina per se illustrata. It can be used with Ecclesiastical pronunciation.

    Once pupils have some basics, they can start studying Fr. Lhomond's "Epitome historiæ sacræ", which is easier than his other book "De viris illustribus ...". I guess you can find second hand copies.
