¶“At least you have some magic even if it is always a disaster,” Isabelle Ingenuous reminded herfriend as she twirled the purple butterfly that perched in her mane of auburnhair. “The rest of us can’t even open a classroom portal,”she concluded.

¶Suddenly, right in front of this sextet,stood a tall man who was dressed all in black with a shiny, new, black hat perched on his slick black hair.He peered down at the group and boomed in a loud,monotonous voice,“Welcome to Horribly Hard Middle School.” The frightening man then announced that he was the dean of the school and that his name was Dean Dread.

  • Extra Credit:
  • Add an extra check to the Caught Ya! error if you got it right on your own.
  • Vocabulary
    • mane(n.) long, thick hair
    • portal(n.) a door, gate, or entrance, especially one of imposing appearance
    • sextet(v.) a group of six
    • monotonous (adj.) a vocal utterance or series of speech sounds in one unvaried tone
    • dread(adj.) greatly feared; frightful; terrible
  • Underline the sentence with the compound predicate (verbs).
  • Circle the prefix that means “away, without.” Disaster means ill-starred. In ancient Greece, when bad luck happened, it was blamed on an unfavorable position of a planet or star in astrology. A favorable planet was too far away.
