    The weekly WORD ANALYSIS skill for our novel Pay It Forward is Latin Word Origins.  Many English words come from Latin words.  Students will practice in school a variety of words with Latin origins.  For example apprentice comes from apprehendere which means to learn.  The word atmosphere comes from shpaira which means ball or globe, and manufacture comes from manu meaning hand and factum which means made.  We will work with many others when we return.
