Yeah, the ISAT vocabulary list was supposed to have been collected at about this time last week, but that just didn’t happen. Sorry parents! I try to make these posts highly reliable, but last week my life got sort of crazy. So I didn’t have a chance to update these posts during the week. I’m just going to keep moving forward. Again, I apologize to you for the oversight.
Students: it’s possible that Mrs. Sparhawk took grades on the D.O.L. (grammar assignment) today. Please ask her if she did. If so, it’s now possible to download a D.O.L. makeup sheet right here on Clipboards. Just click on the “Assignments” button at the top and download one of the D.O.L. makeup assignments. (Or you can just get one from the makeup work center in Mrs. Sparhawk’s classroom.)
On Tuesday, February 7, Mrs. Sparhawk handed out a new vocabulary list. These fifty words and their definitions were collected today, for a grade. If the student was absent today, Mrs. Sparhawk follows the attendance policy as it’s printed in the student agenda (so if you were gone one day, you have one extra day to turn things in; if you were gone two days, you get two days to turn things in; etc.), but if students weren’t absent on the day this assignment was due, they will be docked five points for each late day. So get it turned in RIGHT AWAY, boys and girls! Mrs. Sparhawk can give you an immediate grade, if you turn it in during the D.O.L., so that you’ll have it, to take home and study for Friday’s spelling test.
The students will be given a vocabulary test over these 50 words on Friday, February 24. They need to know the basic meaning for each word. It’s also a good idea to have them study how to spell these words, as these words have been part of the “spelling” section of past ISAT tests.
Because there are so many words this time, I suggest they study these words tonight and tomorrow night.
Please note: students who passed neither “Folklore Vocabulary Test 4c” nor the re-test over that list, will be required to take the folklore vocabulary test again this Friday instead.
