Today we had our PIE celebration, and students got to snack on your delicious confections as they took the vocabulary quiz. (I think it was probably the sweetest quiz you will take all year.) Speaking of quizzes, here is an announcement that I made today:

If you would like to improve your last vocabulary quiz score, you can raise it to an 80 by writing sentences for every word on the list, and bringing them to me tomorrow by the end of lunch. Your sentences must be high-quality and demonstrate that you understand the meaning of the word. If you’re just throwing words into a sentence willy-nilly, I won’t give you any credit whatsoever.

No homework for tonight, but you can be reading your free choice book and doing your second Ella Minnow Pea reading guide: EMP Reading Guide 2
