Word of the Week

slop: /slŏp/ verb. 1. to open your book to the right page on the first try.

Example: I slop.

 


Side note: I never picked up on my students using this word last year (or they never opened to the right page). My students this year, however, slop every day in Math.

After viewing the fleece pajamas I wore the first time I answered the door, when she joined me in shopping at the store, and at 8pm that same day.
