Each month the TeachingBooks.net team is going to answer a “get-to-know-you” question, so you can learn more about us, and because we’d love to get to know more about you — please feel free to share your answer in the comments section!
Sarah: Threshold — I’m drawn in by both the literal and figurative meanings of threshold, and I also like the pieces: thresh and hold. Merriam-Webster’s definition is: 1. a piece of wood, metal, or stone that forms the bottom of a door and that you walk over as you enter a room or building 2. the point or level at which something begins or changes. Runner up current favorite word: jazzed (as in, excited).
Val: My favorite word is “outside” as in “let’s GO….”. While not a fan of temps below 40 and over 85 being outside is always my preference!
Mark: At this moment my favorite word is “coffee.”
Annette: Right now it is “snuggle.” My granddaughter knows what it means and that is the best feeling. Her snuggles.
Jeanette: I enjoy the word “pillow” because it sounds soft and comfy.
Adam: Currently my favorite word is “portmanteau.” A portmanteau is a word that combines two other words, like: beefalo, brunch, Brangelina. It comes from a French word that means a hard-sided trunk or suitcase with two identical halves. I like it because it’s just a fun word to say, and has two interesting definitions.
Carin: One of my favorite words is “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” because it is supercalifragilisticexpialidocious-ly long!
Ray: “Goal” because I need to know the desired outcome, and because I really enjoy soccer.
