Today I plan to get started on a new chapter in the vocabulary book, the origins of everyday words. I’ve been looking forward to this chapter because it ties in so well with our Word of the Month poetry challenge. One way I try to be original each month is to spend a little time studying the word in search of fresh ways to use it in my poem. I plan to introduce that approach in writing both prose and poetry as I develop my parts of the chapter. I know of several teachers who have agreed to participate in the shaping of the book who will enjoy the lessons in this chapter too.
Friends, my goo foffing time is winding down to the final days so I’d better get busy!
