I do this with my afterschool kids... I gave them dire, dilate and some other D word. They have a week to use it in a sentence since I only have them for a few hours.


"Ms. Ming, this morning, on my way to school, I saw this girl whose edges were so dilated. she was in dire need of a wig."


the accomplished face she gave me, I couldn't laugh in her face. And, she came over to me, i didn't have to ask. I sent her to the computer to check if she used her words correctly and she came back laughing. She got the concept, just not the application
