SAT Words for Kindergarteners from Picture Books

Best Picture Books that Build Vocabulary

I realize that maybe only a few of us find this list both amusing and educational.  My husband and I love to ask our son what he thinks these words mean just to hear his responses.  Even when our son is correct, we always get a good chuckle.  It’s even funnier when he’s wrong.  Then, we read the sentence and he gives it another go.  Usually the sentence helps him nail down the meaning.

We do this during dinner and his two older sisters have to restrain themselves from shouting out the answer.  It’s a quick 5 minutes but it’s almost as much fun as watching squirrelly little boys at karate.  Mom friends and I try not to laugh out loud, that would undermine the Sensei who is also trying to hold back his smile!  So enjoy this list with your Kindergartener and realize that this might be the only time that learning new vocabulary words is a fun and amusing experience for all.

p.s. I have a category of posts on SAT Vocabulary Words for Kindergarteners here.
