Homeschooling With American Girl: Felicity Learns A Lesson Vocabulary Words

We have a list of vocabulary words that we've come up with for each book. Sometimes they are words that the children have never heard before, some are words that they know in a different context, but they are all words that end up being discussed as we read through the books. Feel free to use these, add to these, take some out, or whatever works for your classroom. If you think of any more words that should be added to the list please comment.
