Picture Books that Build Vocabulary for Kindergarten
I know that some moms think that this is a terrible idea, but I am finding that my Kindergartener loves big words and his teacher sends a list of vocabulary words home each week that is created by our school’s literacy specialist. We just read the word and the sentence at the dinner table (for the benefit of the two older kids), and let our youngest tell us what he thinks the word means. It’s actually a cute and fun exercise and he’s surprisingly correct most of the time. Try it. Your older kids will be DYING to give the answer. And that doesn’t suck!
