I have given student the opportunity to make up half of the points they have missed. To do this they need to use lined notebook paper with a correct heading (name, subject and date in the right hand corner). For each question they missed they need to provide the number and write a sentence of two explaining why they missed the question. Their response must include a reference to the correct definition. They may need to review definitions in the Wordly Wise book to do this well. Often words have more than one meaning they need to choose the correct meaning.
Students made excellent suggestions to improve future test performance. We began lesson 2 with a visual match activity created by Mr. Povilaitis. This will allow students to make a visual connection to each of the word’s meanings. Second students discussed how important it was to do each of the lesson. Third many students said the online resources were very helpful. They preferred Quizlet to the resources on my webpage. Here is a link to those sources. https://quizlet.com/subject/wordly-wise-book-4/
