Call to Action
I love how you’re maximizing your vocabulary! I have now taught 21 new words over the past three days! To see what you’ve missed, click here and here. As always, practice using them in sentences or pay it forward and teach someone else. Better yet, create a two minute video of yourself, a youngster, or someone you know using each of these words in a sentence. Then, send your video to me ASAP at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’m going to choose the top five videos and share it on my various social media pages and my website.
