The Swadesh List is a comparison of 270 words that are the most used in each language.
Many teachers are aware of the overlap of Latin-root words (commonly called ‘Romantic’ languages.) Comparing modern-day iterations of these words still shows a common root.
Choose words for today’s lesson from the Swadesh List. Compare the words; find the roots that they have in common.
Ages 3-5: 3 nouns
Ages 6-8: 10 nounds
Ages 9-12: 10 nouns and verbs (mixed)
Ages 13-18: 20 nouns and verbs (mixed)
Build the words into a challenge and create an anchoring activity as part of the Ignite 7 Steps.
Ignite BrainWODs are comprised of 7 phases (the Ignite 7 Steps.) The above can be used on its own as a lesson in language encoding, or incorporated into the 7 Steps for optimal benefit.
The Ignite 7 Steps are outlined in Enrichment Through Exercise, and taught in our NeuroMotive Coach Certifications.
