Summer Reading Activity

On Friday we worked with palindromes and semordnilap.

Palindromes are words that you read the same way forward or backward, such as dad, radar, mom, did, level and noon.

Semordnilaps are words that if you read them backwards you read a different existing word, they have another meaning.
