Congratulations, Kids! You've completed learning the next round of vocabulary words, and now it's time to review.

Hear It!

afternoon

Which Means:

The time of day between 12:00 p.m. (noon) and evening (after sunset).

As In:

Image Elaine loves to spend the afternoon at the pool with a good book.

Heads Up!

This is such a practical word. What time is it? It's after noon! Afternoon.

Hear It!

loudspeaker

Which Means:

A device used to make sound more stronger (louder).

As In:

Image At summer camp, the cook announced when it was time for lunch over the loudspeaker.

Heads Up!

Loudspeaker is made up of 'loud' and 'speaker'. Speaker is spelled with an EA, just like 'speak'.

Hear It!

homesick

Which Means:

Sad and longing to return to the place and people where you usually live.

As In:

Image While away at his grandparents' for vacation, Lewis was homesick for his mom and dad.

Heads Up!

If you're homesick, you might actually feel a little sick: a nervous feeling in your stomach, sadness, and maybe you want to sleep.

Hear It!

raindrop

Which Means:

A small, rounded, individual bit of water that falls from clouds.

As In:

Image A raindrop clung to the flower bud.

Heads Up!

A raindrop is one drop of rain.

Hear It!

newborn

Which Means:

An animal or person that has just been delivered by birth.

As In:

Image The mother took her newborn for a ride in the stroller.

Heads Up!

Newborn is made of 'new' and 'born'. A newborn is very young, just recently born.
