For the Latin, you might want to join the Classics-L or Latin Teach
lists. Ginny Lindzey has some good materials for Latin, check her blog:

I don't know if it's still around, but the "Ecce Romani" series was
great for the younger Latin students, it was all in Latin with
supplementary materials for grammar, etc. Otherwise try the JACT
