Theme: The Importance of Words
Once upon a time 50 words relating to nature were eliminated from the Junior Oxford Dictionary. The words were taken away to make room for other words related to technology. How important do you think the words and their definitions are?
Below are just some of the words that were eliminated. Please take time to learn them and what they relate to. Do you know any of the words? Can you match the words to the pictures? Click on the pictures to see if you guessed right.
Activity: Today's activity is to take 5 or more of the words and use them in a story or a poem. Maybe you can draw pictures along with the story or poem. Another activity is to find some of these plants in your neighborhood. When we take the time to get to truly know the plants and animals, we will never forget them.
Gratitude: I'm thankful for learning about nature and the animals. We never stop learning no matter how old we become. What are you grateful for today?
