Vocab has sometimes seemed a bit of a weak spot for DD, but she knew more of the words than I thought she would.

Great idea! I signed up for Wordsmith.org "A.Word.A.Day" a while back and get daily emails with a new vocab word from them. We can use these to start some dinner vocab fun in addition to our usual "how was your day", "anything fun or interesting happen in school" chatter.
Thanks ultramarina!
