APRIL SHOWERS bring WORD POWERS: Days of Literacy for Kids!

So… we’ve learned some awesome ANIMAL WORDS… dobbin, kob, lammergeir, muntjac, naked mole-rat and olm.

April Showers bring work powers

We’ve learned a few just plain old INTERESTING WORDS… aubade, beaux, crinigerous, eye rhyme, fritinancy, gneiss, hallux, ides, jentaculum and pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis.

And, of course, there are the always fun BODY PART WORDS… hallux and today’s word:  patella

Why say kneecap when you can use an awesome word like patella?

The word patella is derived from the Latin patina, meaning shallow pan… and patella is defined as a small movable bone, flattened and convex in shape, covering the front of the knee joint. It makes perfect sense to call your patella a knee-pan or knee-cap!

I wonder how many of our April Word Animals have halluxes and/or patellas

Join us each day in April for a WONDERFUL WORD to add to your kids’ LITERACY WORD POWER…  at 365 Days of Literacy for Kids – Fun, Easy & Completely Do-able!
