Just 5!

After meeting someone – or after an outing or event – you can help your child learn the importance of carefully chosen words.

  • “In just 5 words, how would you describe ….?” Note the words that match from your lists – and explore those that are different. Can you each understand why the differing words were chosen?
  • After a movie or TV show, ask for 5 words to describe the main character – or the action.


  • Play a guessing game. See if you can guess who they are describing – one word at a time. Can you guess in one word? Two?
