The spelling test on these words will be given the following week.(10 words X 4 points each = 40 points per week.) 2.Look at the journal topics on the board. Select one and respond each class period. Date your entry (1 pt. per day) and then follow it with a two-paragraph response. (10-12 sentences, up to 10 pts. per day) If you use one of the days spelling words correctly in one of your sentences of your journal response, you will be awarded four extra points! Only four extra credit points per day. You must underline the word. (These sentences must be your original creation that demonstrate that you understand the words definition.) 3.Keep your spelling lists and journals in a notebook neatly and in order (unless you have been absent). Add these in the next available space.
