Is this learning?...wait, you tricked me! I just thought it was FUN!

Introducing...Nerd Games starring Ashley!

Big Sister knows some big words, and she likes to share her knowledge with Little Sister.

So, with her newfound vocabulary, Ashley playfully invented this "Onomatopoeia Song"!

At first, she would just follow up "onomatopoeia" with any random word. But then Elizabeth and I tried to help her along by saying "YES!" or "Nooooo" to indicate whether she had correctly given an example of an onomatopoeia. And Elizabeth would patiently repeat to her, "Ashley...it has to be a word that's like a SOUND!"

I don't know about you, but I think she really does get the idea!...
