Facebook Word of the Week: KINDLE

In today's technology driven world, we may not realize that our students have different (modern) definitions for words we take for granted.

The SAT word for this week is kindle. It means to ignite or set on fire. We kindle a flame for the bonfire. We can use the base of this word and generalize it to kindling as well. Kindling is what we use to assit in starting a fire. We lived out in the woods as a child, and my dad used to send my brother and me out to gather kindling - small branches that would burn quickly and help get the fire going.
