Does your child come home telling you about the new word of the day every day? Do you get to see the Daily Dictionary or the Basic Cell sentence sheet every day? Here is a sample of what one page from the Daily Dictionary should look like! You will have to ask your child about the motions that go with the words. :)

From Education Week--According to the latest research, the two best predictors of college success are not grades and intellectual ability. Number one is “conscientiousness” (dependability, perseverance, work ethic). Number two is “agreeableness” (interpersonal skills, getting along with other people, working well in groups).
From what I’ve observed, I would say the same is true for life after college—jobs and careers, marriage and family life. Success comes more easily for people who are willing to work hard and who are able to cooperate with other people.
