Word of the Day

Word of the Day

WORD PLAY

Every morning we will discuss a new word of the day.  Throughout the week, the words will be related in meaning or a seasonal theme. 

We will look at the word to practice pronunciation, learn its meaning, and to search for smaller words within the larger word by scrambling the letters around.  For example:

Word of the Day: 

COMMENCEMENT

Meaning: To begin (This is our word on the first day of school)

How can we break this word into syllables to pronounce it?

Co-mence-ment

What words can we make with these letters?

men

ten

a

no

on

**You will be impressed with how differently your student will look at words, once they get the hang of this activity**
