october 3 rd english ii

Warm-up: Get out your Nectar in a Sieve packet and look at your vocabulary words for Chapter 1-2.

Choose five vocabulary words from Ch. 1 that you haven’t written a sentence for yet. Write five sentences that use these words correctly (remember to look at PARTS OF SPEECH; don’t use a noun as an adjective, a verb as a noun, and adverb as an adjective, etc.).

Your sentences can be as ridiculous as you want. You can talk about someone’s mama, you can write about a classmate, you can write about me… as long as you use the word correctly, you’ll get points. 

Period 6: No warm-up. Instead, get out Monday’s warm-up/cool-down and let’s review your sentences for Chapter One vocabulary words!

If I call your name, please choose one vocab. sentence to read.  (It can be as silly as you’d like, as long as you use the words correctly… use nouns as nouns, use adjectives as adjectives, etc.)
