We have been trying to have a word of the week for quite some time and don’t do such a great job. It drops off as soon as things get busy. So when I decided to participate in Blogging Through The Alphabet with some of my blogging friends I decided this is what we would do – we would blog through the alphabet with a “Word of the Week” beginning with the Letter of the Week for the blog post.
Now my children are elementary age so these words are aimed at developing my elementary school aged kids vocabulary but are generally words that I think are interesting, unique or something kids should know.
So, I hope you enjoy our vocabulary development with Blogging Through the Alphabet – Word of the Week as we begin with A.
A is for ambivalent
Definition: mixture of opposite feelings
Used in a sentence:
Emma felt ambivalent about going to camp because she knew it would be fun but she she would miss her family.
(replace the words “mixed feeling” with the word “ambivalent” in the sentence above to understand the meaning in the sentence)
How we worked with the word:
- Write the word and its definition in our vocabulary notebook.
- Read the definition out loud.
- Write two sentences using the word properly.
Do you use vocabulary words in your school? What do you like to do with developing vocabulary for your children?
