We have 3 rounds of the game Fortunately, Unfortunately! Fortunately is an adverb that means to be fortunate…or lucky! Unfortunately…well, that means the opposite. In this game, each player adds a sentence to a story that evolves and grows, but each sentence must start with either the word Fortunately or Unfortunately. We’ll start each round…then YOU continue the play with friends or family. We’ll tell you when to hit pause at the end of each round. The idea of the game is to continue adding sentences to the story until, unfortunately, you run out of them! Fortunately, you’ll get the idea once we begin!
Well, I received a letter from my Dear Aunt Agnes and it has so many oxymorons in it, so I can’t figure out WHAT she’s trying to tell me! Can you help identify all of the Oxymorons in her letter? What’s an oxymoron you ask?
Oxymorons are when you place two words next to each other that seem to contradict each other, or have opposite meanings, but when used together, they have meaning! For example, Jumbo Shrimp is an oxymoron….because Jumbo means big and Shrimp means small, but together, it means a something delicious!
