Word of the Week

grateful (adjective)


Meaning – feeling or showing an appreciation for something done or received.


Example of using it in a sentence: “I am very grateful when everyone does their homework and I don’t have to chase them over the holidays – and you know that I will chase you over the holidays!


Spelling Tip – the tricky bit is the ‘great’ and ‘grate’ which to choose – and how many times have we chosen the wrong one? The original Latin root word ‘gratus’ – ‘grate’ means ‘thanks’ and the suffix ‘ful’ makes the word mean: “full of thanks.” Whereas, ‘great’ means “bigger than average” and with the suffix does not quite make sense!


gr + ate + ful


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.
