|"Proboscis: A skin disease that causes rashes and bumps."|
This past week I finally used the words I've been collecting. Thanks everybody, for contributing to the list which grew to be over 200 words long!
|Paw-paw means "two grandpa dogs showing their paws with pom-poms."|
|Tarmac is "when there is mac and cheese on the road."|
Of course sometimes the picture made perfect sense, no explanation required.
|Puce is "a sound that a gun makes...puce...pew...puce!"|
If it weren't for the heavy use of glitter you might think this was thought up by a boy.
|A boondoggle is a "dog ghost with goggles."|
I did this with my youngest students, 11 years old, who were least likely to have sophisticated vocabulary.
This was a super fun activity for them!
|"The wimple crawled through the grass."|
"Wimple" is such a great word.
|Hippocampus is "where the hippos go for fun."|
Although "hippocampus" may have it beat.
|Supercilious is "when someone is acting super-silly."|
The noise level in the room was high, reminding me to add the word "decibel" to the list.
|"Serendipity dipped her toes into the Atlantic ocean."|
After they finished the drawing, they attached a card containing the real meaning.
|"A Desiccant is a small bug about the size of a strawberry. They have a long neck and a shell that no predator can break. They have small wings and can carry things 100x their size. NO Desiccant looks the same."|
It was really fun for me to see what was inside their heads...
...because sometimes what's inside their heads is SO much cooler than real life!
