As it turns out, the first word list in this book included 'pariah' and 'aviary.' It made me laugh. Totally cracked me up. Why? We just had both those words on a recent vocabulary packet. In junior year. In 11th grade. it's only been what - eight years?
As I continued looking, more and more words appeared. Scanty. Lavish. Asinine. Vindicate. Vacillate. I'd had all these words before, no wonder I could spell them now when we were doing them again for SAT Prep. It was really odd, though. I mean, if I was doing this in third grade, other kids must've been doing it too. So why can't they spell the words now?
Oh I wonder
what's in my wonder ball?
