  1. Onomatopopeoia! We do a chant to remember and conga line!
    “Onomatopeoia, I am just a sound word ” really gets my firsties to remember and use them in their writing.

  2. Excusez moi s’il vous plait! Excuse me please in french. I teach this to my student every year. They think it is so neat!

  3. My favorite big word is, phalanges. Phalanges simply put are toe or finger bones. I’m always reminding my preschoolers to keep their phalanges out of their nose. ☝️????????????

  4. I’ll admit my favorite word is Bamboozled!! However, when I started reading the comments, I think Kelly Brown stole the show with her comment…..
    Definitely going to buy this book to read to my class…..
