Word of the Week Wednesday

Greetings Wednesday raviolis.  Today's word of the week is a big word with lots of is:


This big word can be noun, which is a person, place or thing.

A ballet performance.

It can be an adjective which is used to describe a noun.

A "performance" bike.

The word "performance" means...the act of performing; of doing something successfully; using knowledge.  I like this word.  It is a large word that has 3 syllables or "breaks" when you say it.  You perform when you play a sport or do your homework.


We want our performance to always be good because we want to succeed in what we choose to do.  If you like to lay lacrosse, you want to perform well.  If you want to be teacher, you want your school performance to be positive.  Sometimes our performance isn't so good.   We may not have studied as hard as we should so we don't achieve our best grade.  Our performance suffers and then we have to go back and repeat the same work in order to get it right.  This is okay, this is how everyone learns.  Even grandma-ma still does homework because she likes to learn.  Somethings will always take some extra study time but they are usually worth it in the end.  So remember to use the word "performance" in three sentences today.  Here is grandma-ma's first sentence:

"The little league team performance was the best this year as the team worked hard to excell in their performance."  Did you see that grandma-ma used the word twice in one sentence?  Now that is good performance!  Love to you all.  Grandma-ma
