I want to start teaching my kids a "Word of the Day".
There were clearly several times this past year when my preschooler and Kindergartener needed to understand some crucial words. And when put to the the task (out of necessity) I totally came through on several occasions. At times, I would say my definitions and explanations of words were down right inspiring. A few of the words we've covered to date include, "karma", "adaptability", and "obnoxious".
I am going to blastoff my new Word of the Day campaign tomorrow with "gravity" and will need to come up some other big, important words which I can enlighten their gorgeous little heads with.
I'm shooting for meaningful words which they can use now, preferably relating to topics such as, but not limited to: the benefits of living in another country, how to treat your brother, and acting cool in public without bribes of Cadbury Chocolate mini-Easter eggs.
I'm looking for words-- got any?
