SAT Vocabulary Words from Picture Book The Gingerbread Man

Picture Books that Build Vocabulary

The words for Week 9 are from the picture book, The Gingerbread Man by Jim Aylesworth and Barbara McClintock. It turns out that my son has “Text Talk” at school and this is the source of all the SAT Vocabulary Words for Kindergarteners. They read a picture book and then talk about the “big words.” Picture books are great sources for not only gorgeous artwork, a complete story with a beginning, middle and end in about 36 pages, but rich language!! Did I mention that I LOVE picture books?!

p.s. I have a category of posts on SAT Vocabulary through Picture Books for Kindergarteners here.

delicious: The cookie was so delicious that Kayla wanted more.

fancy: I liked to get up dressed up in fancy clothes with lots of lace and sparkles.

rather: I would rather swing on swings than slide down the slide at recess.

shaped: The cookie was shaped like a man.

boast: My friend boasted that she scored two goals during her soccer game yesterday.

devoured: My dog was so hungry that he devoured his dinner.
