Did you finish defining all 50 vocabulary words? You can earn up to 50 points of extra credit by submitting each word, written in a sentence that demonstrates you understand its meaning. Your sentences must follow these requirements:
- number your sentences
- only use one vocabulary word per sentence
- spell the vocabulary word correctly in the sentence
- write sentences that really show how much you understand the meaning of the words
- use a capital at the beginning of each sentence
- use a period at the end of each sentence
By the way, this is not only worth extra credit points, but it’s good practice for Friday’s spelling test!
What am I not looking for? Sentences that don’t show meaning:
- I like octagonal things.
- I am antiquated.
- I like hamlets.
What would I rather see (you may not copy/paste these, by the way–come up with your OWN sentences):
- A stop sign has an octagonal shape.
- My grandmother’s old sewing machine from the 1920s is antiquated.
- The villagers from the hamlet came out to greet the knight as he arrived.
