Location: Vocabulary Notebook
One new activity that we will add to this semester’s learning is the Vocabulary Log for your Yellow Lists. In your notebook, you have been keeping track of your lists and quizzes, while the activities have been stored in your OWL. Starting this semester, this is the order for your Vocabulary Notebook:
The Vocabulary Log is another independent learning opportunity. Here are some of the benefits:
1. Extends your learning beyond the classroom
2. Helps you to decode the meaning of unfamiliar words
3. Increases your vocabulary bank for writing and speaking
FORMAT UPDATE: Here is what your Vocabulary Log MUST look like:
YL# – Vocabulary Log
|Number||Date Found||Stem or Vocabulary||Complete Sentence||Source||Decoded meaning||Dictionary Definition|
|Example||1/05||PRIM||” . . . . primary school . . . ”||“Article Title” & Source Name||prim means first so maybe it means the first school||“preparatory to something else in a continuing process”|
** You must have at least 5 entries in your log.
** Read online newspapers or magazines so that you give yourself the best opportunities to encounter challenging words.
