Don’t Lose It, Reuse It

Our new words are reuse, telescope, horn, and decorate. Help your child learn the words. The words come from the book Don’t Lose It, Reuse It.

Reusing plastic bottles for plants

Reuse – to use again or use more than once.

Ask your child: What can we reuse instead of throwing away?


Telescope – an instrument that uses lenses and sometimes mirrors to make distant objects appear larger

Ask your child: What do you see when you look through a telescope?

Goat with horns

Horn – a hard, hollow growth on the head of certain mammals. Goats and sheep are some animals that have horns

Ask your child: What animals have horns?

Decorating a cake

Decorate – to make more attractive by adding things

Ask your child: How would you decorate a cake?


Thank you for helping your child learn these words!
