KKatMac’s Word of the Week March 13, 2014

Filed under: Site Happenings — KK @ MacD @ 8:54 pm

The World of the Week Project is our way of expanding our children’s vocabulary.  We have been choosing some pretty challenging words. Children are asked to SAY the word. DEFINE it. Put it in a SENTENCE. Finally, they are asked to RHYME it.  As stated, the word changes weekly.  The first child to master the four components of the challenge receives a sweet reward.  Also, if we overhear, the word being used in casual conversation, we intervene with further rewards. Keep and eye out for new vocabulary at home!
