So Justice has his assignment of the summer… READ… anything he wants and as much as he can. He chose Aseop’s Fables tonight as his book, errr… well e-book as he has adopted the Kindle app on his computer happily and it’s one of many books I have for it. As part of the reading assignment though, I have asked him to write about what he’s read which tonight was 60 very short fables. So it’s a title of the fable and the lesson learned. Knowing that Aseop’s Fables are very short and amusingly use a wide vocabulary not found in today’s kid’s books has led to several questions about meanings of words:
- Ass (what? read the sentence so we know what’s going on in the story!)
- tyrant (completely mispronounced enough to confuse me! LOL)
He had other vocabulary that day too but these were the best ones.
