What you'll learn in this childhood class:

Etymology + Animation = Etymation…Word Study via Animated Cartoons (Grades 3 - 6)

Learning about words improves vocabulary, spelling, and the overall skills needed to excel through Common Core’s text complexities. A look at etymology allows children to understand why our spelling system, with its many inconsistencies and variations, often seems so irrational. 

Etymation is a series of animated cartoons and accompanying activities that explain the reasons behind spelling’s irregularities in an innovative and exciting fashion. The videos stimulate the curiosity and enthusiasm needed to approach the intricate American English spelling system in a meaningful and enjoyable way. Etymation will expand your students’ vocabulary repertoire, as they become skilled at analyzing and investigating new words across all content areas. After engaging in the activities yourself, you will recognize the simplicity of weaving word study and analysis into your curricula, as well as the numerous lifelong effects that this will have on students, especially those learning English as a new language and/or those with diverse learning needs.
