Juicy Vocabulary

We are trying to use better vocabulary in my classroom. Sometimes it means thinking of the biggest and fanciest word you know.

Today I was trying to put together a listening center. There was a CD player, cords everywhere, headphones...and it wasn't going well.

Unnamed student: What in the world are you doing, Mrs. Ackroyd?

Me: Oh, I'm just trying to put this thing together.

Un-named student: Wow. Looks tricky. Looks so....succulent!

....good word
....wrong context
....but good word!

We'll keep working on using interesting vocabulary!
