More Word Nerds!




We had some interesting choices for word nerds this week and I loved some of their word illustrations.  I think we have a tendency to limit vocabulary in our society and underestimate their capacity for understanding new vocabulary.  I hope you enjoy the illustrations!

Attack of the Word Nerds!!!!!!!


We celebrated our first Word Nerd Friday.  Each child was asked to bring in the most unusual word that they heard this week.  The winner for Mrs. Harmon's class won with, discombobulated.  My class voted moron as their favorite word.
