There IS a difference.
A 5th grade class is being asked 3 syllable words. Each kid is asked to stand up and say a word.
1st Kid – Banana
2nd kid — Telephone
3rd kid — Continent…. etc
Comes to Little DJ and he just doesn’t get it….
Teachers says: “Your homework tonight is to learn a 3 syllable word and tell us before we start class tomorrow.”
Next Day the Teacher asks DJ: “ What is your three syllable word?”
DJ stands up and says: “Contagious”
Teacher is surprised….. “Wow, Good DJ, Where did you learn that word?”
DJ: “Last night during the snow storm, my mom was outside shoveling…. My Dad looked out the window and said: ‘It is gonna take that Contagious to finish that sidewalk!’”
