EXAMPLES OF WORD STUDY HOMEWORK: On Monday during class, you will be expected to writing down the words in your agenda. It is your responsibility to spell the words correctly when copying them down. breakfast - the first meal of the day comfortable - having comfort cozy - warm and comfortable forest - thick woods gobbled - ate fast and greedily hungry - feeling a desire or need for food promise - to give one’s word
WRITE A STORY USING 6 OF THE WORDS It was a chilly morning in the Black forest. Goldie was taking her morning stroll down the path she took every morning. Having not eaten breakfast, made her tummy rumble from being so very hungry. She promised her mother that she would be home before long, but then Goldie took a wrong turn. After many minutes, that seemed like hours, Goldie found a cozy looking cottage next to a babbling brook. Goldie decided to enter the cottage to seek help to get home. Upon entering, Goldie notice right away them most comfortable chairs that she had ever seen. Remember your story must have a beginning, middle, and end. This example is only the beginning and some of the middle.
WRITE A MEANINGFUL SENTENCE Be sure to number the sentences and underline to vocabulary word. NOT a meaningful sentence: I ate breakfast. I am cozy. I see the forest. Meaningful: During breakfast this morning, I ate bacon, pancakes, and toast. The thick forest behind my house is swarming with slithering critters and I refuse to enter it. Since I was starving, I gobbled up my steak as quick as a lion on a hunt.
DIVIDE EACH WORD INTO SYLLABLES Number paper and remember to use your best handwriting. Make sure its clear where you break the words into syllables. 1.break/fast 2.Com/fort/able 3.Co/zy 4.For/est 5.Gob/bled 6.Hun/gry 7.Pro/mise
DRAW A CREATIVE PICTURE AND HIDE THE WORDS You could hide the words on the branch and in the feathers. Where would you hide the words?
WRITE AN ANTONYM/SYNONYM FOR EACH Comfortable Antonym: miserable Synonym: Comfy Complete the tree map for each word. Sometimes you will find synonyms or antonyms already on our word list.
