command When you command someone, you tell him or her what to do.
command Joan commands her dog Sport to come along when she says, “Come with me.” I can command my dog to sit. Would you command a dog or a goldfish to roll over? Why?
command I will say some sentences. If I command you to do something, you must do it. Otherwise, do nothing. Touch you toes. Who is wearing red? Today is Tuesday. Say your name. Open you mouth. I read many books.
labored If you labored, you worked very hard.
labored Joan labored to make the snowman, using snow, sticks and food. On Saturday, I labored all day to clean my home. Would you have labored if you built a sand castle or if you took a nap? Why?
labored I will name some activities. If the activity is something a person would labor to do, stand up. If not, remain sitting. Take a nap. Color in a coloring book. Build a house. Climb a mountain. Eat an apple. Complete math work.
wary When you are cautious and unsure about something that might be dangerous, you are wary.
wary The animals are wary of Joan and do not go near the snowman until she goes inside the house. I would be wary if I heard a strange noise outside my door. Would you be more wary about going into a dark cave or a bright room? Why?
wary I will name some things. If you would be wary of those things, cover your eyes. If not, you should put your hands at your sides. snake friend rock campfire sand ladybug flower bumblebee lion hat dark room stranger
