I love “goes to grocer”!Grocer was one of our spelling words
the week before(Yay! He remembered AND used it AND
spelled it correctly!) and not oneof my kiddos had ever heard it
before. It turned into one of those”you could never
have planned it if you tried” teachable moments that we all love!
We ended up talking aboutequivalent weights and
measurement. It makes myteacher heart so happy when
that happens! Did you know that the root word
of grocery is grossus? In latin it means “large, bulky, thick”.
The idea being that a grocer buys things in ‘grosses’ or large quantities
such as a ‘gross’. There’s your vocabulary lesson for the day!
