Homework this week: Vocabulary worksheet due Tuesday. Vocabulary quiz & reading log due Friday. All grades have now 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! All grades can then use this app/website all year long for any subject.
