English Makes Sense!

I'm finding that my students need a greater comfort level with Latin -- they too often get tripped up by Latin roots and the bewildering variety of declensions and conjugations they find. So, as an introduction to Latin, with the excitement about the new Harry Potter movie just out, we began with the names and spells author Rowling uses, almost all of which have classical derivations, most, but not all, Latin.

I made a chart for the students to start filling in, and thought you might find it useful. You can download it here.
