BUT “BE PREPARED” for it tomorrow!!!!!!!!

Review the following skills:
–the use of context clues, prefixes, suffixes, affixes, cognates, denotations and connotations to aid in understanding vocabulary
–the types of internal text structure and being able to recognize them in writing selections
–determining word parts, i.e. prefixes, suffixes, and root words
–important things to understand when reading a dictionary selection (i.e., the etymology of various words)
–recognizing the various types of pronouns and the use of “agreement” in sentences with subjects, verbs, and pronouns

All of the notes on these items should be in the rings of their binders, AND they should have a table of contents to help find the needed information.

Good luck on these tests. I want to see lots of A’s!!!!!! YOU ALL CAN DO IT!!!!
