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):

  1. A stop sign has an octagonal shape.
  2. My grandmother’s old sewing machine from the 1920s is antiquated.
  3. The villagers from the hamlet came out to greet the knight as he arrived.
