  • What words did you think of when you read outside?

  • Did you draw any of these things?

You are off to a great start!

Thinking about words that go together (or match!) helps us understand what words mean AND can even teach us new words.

One way words can be grouped together is by the type of item they are.

When we put words into groups, those groups are called categories.

There are lots of categories. Some examples are colors, clothing, and weather.

  • Can you think of another type of category?

The words in a category will have meanings that match the meaning of the category.

Let's take a look!

A holiday is a day that celebrates something.

The category "holidays" would include the following words:

  • fun
  • special
  • Valentine's Day
  • parade

The following words would NOT go with the category "holidays":

  • floor
  • doctor
  • mud
  • giraffe
  • What about the word gift?

The word gift could be a part of the category "holidays" because some people celebrate holidays with gifts.

Keep up the good work in the Got It? section!
