This week we will be finishing our Word Study Unit. There will be an assessment this Thursday. Students are be expected to know the definition of all of the affixes/root words and use them to determine the meaning of words. A study guide was given to students last Thursday. I have been emphasizing the important study skill of studying a few words each night.
