This week’s words are nest, owl, glide, and woodpecker. The words come from the book, Who Lives in Trees?
Ask your child what each word means, and if they don’t know, explain the meaning to them or show them an example. Here are easy definitions to use.
Nest – a home for a bird and its eggs made out of sticks.
Owl – a nocturnal bird of prey with large forward-facing eyes.
Glide – move with a smooth continuous motion, typically with little noise
Woodpecker – A bird with a strong bill and a stiff tail, that climbs tree trunks to find insects and drums on dead wood to mark territory. It makes a loud sound as it pecks at a tree.
Keep it up! You are helping your child grow a big vocabulary!
