Terry's Tips

Some words can have more than one meaning. School is a good example of a word with more than one meaning. Ask children to tell what they know about school. Then use the coaches to help explain that school can also mean a group of fish. Help children practice using the word school in different ways.

Extension Activity: Together with your child, think of an animal and try to guess what its group might be called. Then look HERE together to find out!
