Studying Vocabulary and Building Your Digital Portfolio




Flocabulary Vocabulary with Digital Flashcards Today we are going to continue to study this week's Flocabulary vocabulary words:
 
allegiance / chronological / context / diligent / generate / majority / meager / negotiate / obstacle / possess / poverty / prejudice / prosecute / remote / transform

To help you remember the meanings of these words I've created a set of digital flashcards using a program called Quizlet that you can find here, in your Language Arts Google Classroom, as well as below. Please spend some time making sure you understand your words and make sure to study for tomorrow's quiz. 



Building Your Digital Portfolio  You will continue building your Digital Portfolio today. Before you do, self-assess the work you've done so far using the rubric below. What areas of your portfolio do you need to focus on? How can I help?


Homework  (1.) Read your A.R. book at home for at least 30 minutes and, if you choose, make a reading log entry using the Digital Reading Log. (Remember you must have made at least one entry by the end of the day Friday.) (2.) Complete your Vocabulary - Unit 3 (Mandela is Free) - Fix the Mistake, which is due tomorrow, Friday, April 29. (3.) Continue working on your Digital Portfolio. (4.) Study for tomorrow's vocabulary quiz
