As I am catching up on my alphabet word of the week posts and we continue through Blogging Through the Alphabet with some of our homeschool friends, we come to the letter U.
I personally think this is a fun word and I think the kids are going to have fun using it in a sentence this week. It’s just fun to say!
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 begins with T.
U is for UnwieldyDefinition: awkward to deal with or difficult to manage, especially in reference to size, shape, or complexity.
Used in a sentence:
The cart was quite unwieldy due to all the packages that were piled on it.
The storm made her hair quite unwieldy.
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.
The kids like to see who can remember to use the word of the week at breakfast each morning. We are now giving points each day for using it in a sentence properly each day. Whoever gets the most points gets to choose the weekend movie.
Do you use vocabulary words in your school? What do you like to do with developing vocabulary for your children?
