Today marks our official first day of the fourth quarter. Hooray!
Anyway, talk about a win, win situation. This might even be more of a win, win, win. I'm talking about Free Rice, a website that donates grains of rice (through sponsors) for playing their vocabulary game. I've been playing for a few months whenever I happen to think of it, but it wasn't until today that I finally remembered to add it to our vocabulary curriculum and get Annie playing, too. So, why the win, win, win? Well, win #1, it donates rice to the UN hunger program. Win #2, it helps expand one's vocabulary. And win #3, it's just plain fun.
And speaking of vocabulary, Annie's vocabulary list this week made me feel quite ignorant...there were two words on it that I just didn't know. Ugh. On the bright side, that's two new words (sententious and apothegm) I got to learn, huh?
