Wordly Wise?

We have started Explode the Code for phonics and Wordly Wise for vocabulary because even though Josh and Jameson have a strong utilization of English, there are still a lot of words they just wing it on, and they really have no idea what the words actually mean.

Today during vocab, I asked Josh to use the word "flavor" in a sentence. Here's what he came up with:

"When you are sick, you have a flavor."

Our kids come from Ghana, which is an "English speaking country". I don't know what type of English they speak there, but our kids vocabulary isn't much better than your kids. So, while they are good "readers", they really don't have a clue what they're reading.
