Fourth graders at Mt. Pleasant Elementary are expanding their vocabulary with a fun twist.

On Thursday morning, librarian Erica Lutz greeted students in Theodore Klug’s class for a game of “Dictionary Go Fish!”

Armed with dictionaries, students used a fishing pole with a magnet for a hook to catch a word in the “pond.” The students, in teams, then had to locate the word in the dictionary to learn the meaning as well as the part of speech — nouns, verbs and adjectives.

Examples of words the students caught included “juvenile,” “bawl,” “angle,” and “inspire.”
