Word of the Week
Meaning – attract the strong attentions and interest of something or someone.
Example of using it in a sentence: “I have always been fascinated by growing fruit and vegetables.”
Spelling Tip – Interestingly this Latin root word is all about a spell or witchcraft in the sense that you are bewitched. We need to break this word down into the three sections you can hear. The first section you can hear f + a + s, and in the second c + i + n. The late section you need to know ‘ate’ and we can do this by emphasising the ‘a’ and remembering that lots of words end in an ‘e’.
fas + cin + ate
Use the word as many times throughout the week as you can. This can be verbally, in your written work or listen out for other people using it.
