DAY 293 of 365 Days of Literacy for Kids:
Obsolete words are no longer in general use and may have fallen out of favor for nearly a century or more, but who says obsolete and rarely used words can’t be revived by kids who love words?
Today’s word is NARES (nea-riz), a plural noun meaning nostrils.
The word nares is traced all the way back to the 14th century and comes from the Latin nare, meaning related to the nose.
Kids will love the word nares because kids love body part words.
Use your nares with your kids and grandkids today to sniff out fun, new words today!
Join me each day here for OCTOBER OBSOLETE – 365 DAYS OF LITERACY FOR KIDS! – fun, easy and completely do-able!
