The root of the week for September 2-5 is sed, sid, sess which means to sit or settle. The quiz is Friday.
The skills that will be tested this week include multiple meaning words and analogies. The cold read is Thursday. (9/4)
This is a major skills test so students will have the chance to earn an "owl" by making an "A" on this test! It is a cold read so students don't need to study.
EXTRA CREDIT : TIC TAC TOE assignment: Students may select 3 choices from the board. The choices must be in a line and completed with the root of the week. (SED, SID, SESS) The completed TIC TAC TOE board is worth up to 10 extra credit points on the cold read and is due Thursday. Last time, many students were able to bring their grade up by completing this assignment.
There is no assigned book for this class and no daily homework. However each week our class will have a root of the week. On Monday, each student will get a list of 10 words that all contain the same root. We will study the words during the week with the quiz on Friday. Students will need to study their list for the quiz on Friday. A complete list of the root word can be found on my website as a PDF file.(Look under first nine week root word lists.) We will study the lists in order they appear.
