Not that unusual... but it was a grin worth noting.
One of the things we TRY to do daily is "A word of the day". We are looking at adding words to our vocabulary and I read about this in a couple of different fiction books, about how folks pick a word and then try to use it throughout the day. People were always amazed at the vocabulary the young people would have.
I read the word, as I blog it into facebook, giving my lad's sentence and sometimes my sentence after defining it. Here's one post we did:
Word of the day: Accessible. Adjective. Easy to approach or to reach. Lad's sentence : a sentence is not accessible to me cause I am not feeling well. My sentence: Milo is accessible to you. Dad's sentence: Fireheart, the snake, is not accessible to the cats.
As you can see, sometimes Dad takes part as well, particularly if the lad is having a hard time understanding how to use the word in a sentence.
Today our word was Accomplice....this after I went through no less then four words that the lad said "I know that one" and then reamed off a sentence with the word in it to prove it. He just grinned!
Then we reached "Accomplice" and he had no clue what it meant and that was okay. He didn't mind since he was still so tickled pink at how many words he already knew.
This post is my Letter "A" post for the blogging through the alphabet meme hosted by Cristi @ Through the Calm and Through the Storm and Meg @ Adventures with Jude. A is for "A" word of the day.
