Today we took our first vocabulary quiz over Ella Minnow Pea. I scanned your quizzes after school, and students who studied using Vocabulary.com did quite well (with a handful of perfect scores!). Students who did not appear to spend much time using Vocabulary.com did abysmally. So, just something to keep in mind as we move forward – this is a free tool for you to use to improve your mastery of these words, and it’s more fun that most traditional methods of studying.
After that, we went to the library to check out more free choice books! Please make sure that you bring yours tomorrow.
Homework for tonight and tomorrow night is the Ella Minnow Pea Reading and Discussion Guide 1: EMP Reading Guide 1
