DAY 291 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 PLENILUNE, a noun meaning full moon or time of the full moon.
The word plenilune is derived from the Latin plenus + luna = full moon and is documented back to the early 1400’s.
The next plenilune will appear November 10, 2011. Why not be prepared to call it something as awesome as it is… PLENILUNE.
Kids will love the word plenilune because it sounds as lovely as the wonder, science and magic it describes.
Use plenilune with your kids and grandkids today, and make sure you look to the plenilune in November.
