This is DAY 274 of 365 DAYS OF LITERACY FOR KIDS.
Each day in 2011, I’ve shared a little poem, a wonderful word or two, the history of a flower, bug, toy or bird… and most recently, fun idioms.
These little LITERACY tidbits are fun, easy and completely do-able and talk-able with kids. I should know. I share them with my own grandkids!
But if I had to choose the Day, thus far, that has made the most impact on my 9 grandkids, it would be DAY 94… April 4th, which happened to be my grandson Ben’s 4th birthday. During April, I was sharing fun words that kids might not recognize. DAY 94’s word was crinigerous.
The word crinigerous would make family history. What kid can resist a word meaning hairy or bearing hair?
The word crinigerous has found its way into every family discussion, family fun or family joke. I love it because I love to see my grandkids loving words!
SO to continue the fun of reviving obsolete or nearly obsolete words that kids will most certainly LOVE, the month of October is designated OCTOBER OBSOLETE on 365 Days of Literacy for Kids… and each day will bring a wonderful word that needs to be revived by your kids and my grandkids!
Join me here each day in OCTOBER for OCTOBER OBSOLETE: REVIVING WORDS THAT KIDS WILL LOVE!
