August 27: Wordy Wednesday!

Today we started our vocabulary program!

1. Students picked up their guided notes sheets at the door.

This is for Honors: V1.5 WS Honors Lesson 1 SAT Words

This is for Standard: V1 WS Standard Workbook plus SAT Lesson 1

2. We then learned some word roots and talked about the definition of ambivalent (1st period) or ambiguous (6th and 7th). We also identified parts of speech. Here’s a cheat sheet for that: Identifying Parts of Speech Cheat Sheet.

3. Student then chose a memoir written by a student to read. We began reading these in class and will continue tomorrow.

HW: None! Start thinking about what you could write a memoir about.
