VR I thought was good until encountering some of the vocab on the CGP test papers! So this is the area we are going to concentrate most on for the last 2 weeks. I have got her to go through the papers and highlight every single word she doesn't know. We seem to have piles of cards with words on one side and the meaning on the other.
I think she needs to share them with me and half the other epe forumites, there are some terribly tricky words there!
Last year it was the nuances between words that caught children off guard, sorry to those I have read my comments on this before.
Which is the most
like the original word:
Tranquil.....quietly, silent, rowdy,calm
May be not quite that mean, but you get my drift.
I think now is the time for play offs on prime numbers, square numbers, fraction/percentage/decimal matches, whizz bang, and those pesky synonyms/synonyms.
Ds 1,2,3 always win here on prime numbers....They cannot catch me on whizz bang though. Just light hearted games.
Maybe do not ask ds for a synonym for "content" when you are dragging him round tesco though, you may just get an antonym in reply,
that ill thought out bit of pushiness cost me a very expensive "ripe and ready" mango!
