As we move forward with our Blogging Through The Alphabet with some of my blogging friends we come to our “Word of the Week” beginning with the letter B.
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.
This weeks Blogging Through the Alphabet – Word of the Week beginning with B.
B is for bibliophileDefinition: an individual who loves books; a collector of books
Used in a sentence:
The flea market was a bibliophile’s dream with rows and rows of old, out-of-print books.
(replace the words “bookworm” with the word “bibliophile” in the sentence above to give the sense a more informal sound)
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.
- Use the word each day in some manner to try and make the use of the word part of our vocabulary.
My daughter really liked this word as she discovered a fun word that she feels describes her. She really liked using the word.
Do you use vocabulary words in your school? What do you like to do with developing vocabulary for your children?
