Word of the day

One way to work on vocabulary is to pick a word of the day and use that word alot. Yesterday our word was Vegetation. On our walk we talked about how the bushes, grass, flowers, trees, etc were all vegetation. Then Kayden would point to stuff and ask if it was vegetation, at first he pointed to things that weren't-like the sky and a light pole but by the end of the walk all he was pointing to was actual vegetation.
I usually pick our word of the day from something he asks about or something new we see and then I try to keep using that word frequently in our talks during the following weeks and months.
