Sea + (?)


So I was doing a page in one of Sean’s “Language Arts” books with him yesterday, about compound words. It was very cute, actually. They had a picture, then a plus sign, then a word (or the other way around) and the student is supposed to say the words out loud to form the compound word. There was a picture of a carton of milk + the word “man” = milkman. There was a picture of a star + the word “fish” = YES! You got it! (good for you.) starfish. Then Sean came to the word “sea” + a picture of a shell (a conch shell, like the one pictured above, but a cartoony version)…

“Eww…what is that?!”
“What do you think it is, Sean?”
“A broken tongue?”
“Yikes. No. Here…just try the first part and maybe you’ll get it.”
“Okay…*ahem*…sea……….brrrain?”

This is our new word for someone who does something silly. That one is a Seabrain. Pass it on!
