"Vocabulary knowledge is knowledge; the knowledge of a word not only implies a definition, but also implies how that word fits into the world." --Steven A. Stahl, Teaching Word Meanings (2005)
Help your child explore words in multiple contexts so that she can build a deeper understanding of word meanings.

Ian's favorite treat is a scoop of ice cream as cold as a polar bear's nose! In school, Ian has learned about similes, a way of comparing something to something else using the words "like" or "as." So when Ian brings ice cream to school, he knows just how to explain to his teacher why he loves it so much.
