OCTOBER OBSOLETE: Reviving words that kids will love… like CHOLLER

365 DAYS OF LITERACY FOR KIDS!

DAY 276 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 choller, a word derived from cholle, meaning jowl.

choller is a noun meaning double chin, flabby cheek or the hanging lip of a hound.

Finally, a word put to those things that hang from a hound dog’s mouth…

Can you imagine your kids and grandkids using the word choller in a writing assignment? 

Let’s grab hold of the word choller and swing into action.  Yuck!

Use choller with your kids and grandkids today!  

And join me each day here for OCTOBER OBSOLETE – 365 DAYS OF LITERACY FOR KIDS! – fun, easy and completely do-able!
