I was helping my child with her homework and noticed that she has to learn words starting with with sm..., st....
I found word "smuh" which i had never seen before as English is not my native language & looked into my English dictionary on my phone and could not find it & while searching for it on internet i found
shake my unicorn head. same meaning as "smh" but the added word "unicorn" puts the speaker higher above the other. Therefore, making themselves more dominant. Basically a classy way to judge someone using an abbreviation that they won't understand. Dumb friend: "I just bought Justin Bieber's new cd!" Cooler 'unicorn' friend: "... smuh."
I am bit lost with it. Is it a slang kind of words should it be taught to children at such an early age?
My basic question is do teachers actually teach children such words in "grade 1"? Or do children learn them from "random" places such as the Internet? Or even "mislearn" them when the teacher is teaching another word, such as "smush?"
Smug was also listed in the list, I am not ruling it out as a mistake on child part as she copied it from white board. But on the other side teacher had marker it as correct (✓). so i also doubt my child had made a mistake unless teacher was not absent minded.
