Homework this week: Cumulative vocabulary quiz over all five lists & reading log due Friday. Grades 7 & 8 have registered on Quizlet.com, using their St. Rose email addresses, and are now able to enter their vocab lists and definitions each week to study with flashcards, practice quizes, & word/definition matching games. These can also be used to help students study for tests in other subjects. There is also a FREE downloadable app on most devices for Quizlet. This is a great app for studying – easy to use & more fun than looking at a word list! I will get 6th graders registered by the end of the week. All grades can then use this app/website all year long.
