This week your child is learning the words harvest, kneaded, chore, and aroma. The words come from the book, The Little Red Hen. Explain what the words mean and talk about them with your child. As you’re going through the week, try to talk about each word three times.
Harvest – the gathering of ripe crops, or the amount gathered. The farmer hired people to help with the harvest.
Knead – to mix by pressing, folding, and pulling. He kneaded the bread dough with his hands.
Chore – a regular job around the house or at work. Her chore today is doing the dishes.
Aroma – a pleasant smell. The soup had a delicious aroma.
Congratulations, you are helping your child grow a large vocabulary!
