DAY 302 of 365 Days of Literacy for Kids:
Obsolete words are no longer in general use and may have fallen out of favor for nearly a century or more, but who says obsolete and rarely used words can’t be revived by kids who love words?
Today’s word is SCELEROUS, and in keeping with Halloween-ish words, scelerous means wicked/villainous.
The word scelerous is documented back to the beginning of the 16th century.
Kids will love the word scelerous because it’s a new “old” way to describe or define something bad, mean, wicked, villainous or atrocious.
Use the word scelerous with your kids and grandkids today… but don’t be scelerous!
Join me each day here for OCTOBER OBSOLETE – 365 DAYS OF LITERACY FOR KIDS! – fun, easy and completely do-able!
