Word Bank


1.       Start from the last page of your composition books

2.      As you read (ANYTHING, but especially the assigned texts for class), and you come across a word you’d like to add to your word bank, record:

a.      The word

b.      The sentence in which you found it (or, if you forgot the sentence, a sentence from the dictionary)

c.      A definition that fits the use of the word in the sentence you found it and makes sense to YOU (it doesn’t have to be from a dictionary!)

d.      For extra credit, make a picture (just a little sketch) that signifies the word

3.       You'll need at least 50 words each marking period, and they may not be any vocabulary words that we have covered in class, (unless the word has a completely different meaning).
