Remember those word of the day calendars that would sit on your desk? I’d never remember to change it…so I’d be using the same big new word for like two weeks, until I frantically noticed and would then tear off two weeks worth of words I’d never get caught up on…sigh. Quite defeating. One of the things I like on my Mac is the ability to set a word of the day screen saver…I thought that would make me more verbose as well…but alas, not so much.
Well, http://wordahead.com/ is trying to help me out once again! Think Word-of-the-Day 2.0! It’s simple and free to register. You can access short video clips that define a word and give several examples along with a visual. Great for 4th grade writing teachers and students, so please share if you think it’s something they’ll use!
