Vocabulary

VOCABULARY ASSESSMENT FOR LISTS #1-6 ON TUESDAY 5/14 (Sections 1, 5, 7) OR WEDNESDAY 5/15 (Sections 2, 6). Study, study, study! You have only one shot at this. No reassessment will be available.

Edward Tulane cast and crew – you will take the assessment on the assigned day with the rest of your class. These are not the new lists; they are words from the beginning of the year up through WWII, so nothing new. Plan accordingly.

Then, we’re on to our last two vocabulary lists of the year:

For both of these lists, you will complete old-fashioned Word Maps by hand for each word. I will provide hard copies, but if you need more, you can find them here: Template for Word Maps.

NOTE: WORDS MAPS MUST BE COMPLETED BY HAND IN NEAT, LEGIBLE HANDWRITING; WORD MAPS CANNOT BE TYPED. SENTENCES MUST BE YOUR OWN ORIGINAL SENTENCES THAT YOU COMPOSE ON YOUR OWN.

Word Map Learning Targets:

  • Determine and clarify a word’s meaning, including its definition(s), part(s) of speech, synonyms, and antonyms.
  • Create an original sentence that shows I understand the word and can use it properly.
  • Create a visual representation of the word that shows its meaning in pictures.
  • Meet the expectations of the 8th grade Writing Specs.
