I can't believe it's December!

It's almost winter and we've finally gotten some rain here.

During the past two weeks we've had these idioms:

  • to let someone down
  • to make it
  • back talk
  • to skate on thin ice
  • to straighten up
  • to be chicken
  • to be a chicken
  • to chicken out
  • to turn out
  • fraidycat
  • there's something to that
We practiced these words.

And we worked on the following tongue twisters:

1.    Give Mr. Snipe’s wife’s knife a swipe.

2.   Will you wash Wendell on Wednesday, William?

3.   Who washed Washington’s white woolen underwear when Washington’s wash­er­woman went west?

 4.   Twelve twins twirled twelve twigs.

 5.   While we were walking, we were watching window washers wash Washington’s windows with warm washing water.

6.   Lesser leather never weathered wetter weather better.

 7.   Welsh wristwatches wear well in wild Wales.

  8.  Of all the felt I ever felt
      I never felt a piece of felt
     Which felt as fine as that felt felt
     When first I felt that felt hat’s felt.
