Declining nouns in -ius and -ium

I was wondering if someone could tell me if I am declining these correctly? This is a little confusing.

The book says:
The plural is regular. Note that the -i- of the base is lost only in the genitive singular, and in the vocative of words like filius.


What about the dative and ablative plurals with their -is- endings?

Singular
Nom - praesidium parvum
Gen - praesidi parvi
Acc - praesidium parvum
Dat - praesidio ...

Your greek handwriting style...

Which kind of epsilon do you write? The reversed 3 or a C with a line in the middle? I like the C with a line in the middle, but reversed 3 is a little bit faster to write. Anyways, is there any kind of significance with the difference? I’ve looked at some papyri and I haven’t seen any of the reversed 3 being used. Another weird thing is that I only see Sigma written ...

Teaching Latin to 5th and 6th graders.

Does anyone know a good Latin textbook for 5th and 6th graders? I tutor students who are homeschooled, but usually I work with older (high school age) children whose parents have already chosen a textbook or program. I myself am partial to "Latin for Reading," but I don't think that would work for younger children. Any advice on this would be appreciated.

Ex 86, #9

I have a question about number 9. We are to translate "The Roman people give money to the good sailors".

I translated this as Populus Romanus pecuniam nautis bonis dant.

The answer key agrees with my translations except it uses dat (singular) instead of dant (plural). What should be used here for the verb "give", singular or plural? I guess I feel that people is the plural of person and people is the object of ...

As he said this he crept from under his bush, and broke off a bough covered with thick leaves to hide his nakedness.
w(j r(u/saito peri\ xroi\ mh/dea fwto/j. (imagine two dots above the iota in xroi\).

I'm having trouble translating this sentence. I know what it means, but I just can't work out what some of the words mean. I need to translate it exactly :? ...

Canon of Polykleitos

I am trying to find a Greek text known as the Canon of Polykleitos, and having a very hard time of it! I need it in English translation, but if I could find it in Greek as well that would be brilliant...

To my knowledge, the text only survives through quotation in Galen's writings. I have a reference, although I don't quite know what it means or what to do with it:
Galen, <i>De placitis ...
