Teaching My Baby To Read 2012 SAT Challenge

 

Calling Nerds of All Ages!

Are you ready for some fun? Starting January 1, 2012 I’ll be using one new SAT word in bold in every post I write. I will be pulling my words from Merriam-Webster’s 365 New Words a Year Page a Day Calendar.

If you have any interest in being as crazy as me, you can use this as an opportunity to start preparing your children now for the SAT. It doesn’t matter if they are toddlers or teenagers. I am constantly reminding my father-in-law that my two year old is capable of learning any word he says! So instead of learning the “saltier” words of the English language, I’m going to start expanding Jenna’s vocabulary now, with words that will someday help her crush the SAT.

All you have to do is slip the daily word into conversation with your child a few times a day. Build it into the words they are used to hearing, and you will add that word into their vocabulary.

If you really want to take this activity to the next level, you can get your own copy of the calendar, or else write the word on a slip of paper and post it somewhere in the house where your literate children are liable to see it. Slip it next to their cereal bowl, hang it on the fridge, or tuck the page into their lunch box with “Love Dad” written on the back. Make this a part of your daily habit, and brace yourself! The diction of this blog is going to become a bit grandiloquent in the new year. 🙂
