It is important to study for each and every vocabulary test. Students will learn 100 new words this year, 20 Greek/Latin roots, and 20 idioms! They will have ten unit vocabulary tests this year--with ten vocabulary words, two roots, and two idioms for each unit.
*Retakes are available for all vocabulary tests--except for finals.
Here is the retake process:
1) Students must create vocabulary flashcards for each vocab word/root/idiom. (Format must follow the instructions on their flashcard handout.)
2) Students must study those flashcards.
3) When the student is ready to retake a test, they must have a note from their parent stating that they have studied for the test and are ready to retake it.
4) Student needs to arrange a time with me to retake the test.
5) I must see their flashcards, parent note, and old test in order to retest.
*There will be a final, cumulative vocabulary test at the end of the year; accordingly, students should keep all of their vocabulary notes and tests and begin reviewing now.
