Vote on your favorite words at dinner.

Give your kids a week to post words on a white board prominently displayed in your house. They are to post their favorite words, the new words they discover, the longest or shortest words, the funniest to say, the most foreign sounding…words, words, words. Give each child his or her own color marker so it’s obvious who is contributing which words.

Learn the meanings, use the words.

At the end of the week, create a ballot that has all the words listed. Vote for the Word of the Week!

You can also include categories:

Most useless term
Hardest to pronounce
Best verb
Most likely to be used to insult someone
Most likely to be used by a snob!

Make up your own categories and vote for your winners. An industrious creative type might design and produce little trophies of certificates. A closed ballot is fun, too. Then announce the winners over dinner or ice cream.
