4th Block:  Vocabulary Card Connections
1.      Spread your cards out on your desk, word side up.
2.     Look for CONNECTIONS between words.  (If you can see connections between words, that means you’re really learning them and understanding their meanings.)
3.     Make piles of your connections.
4.     We will share our connection sentences aloud on the BIG SCREEN.  If one of the sentences sparks a connection in your mind, write it down.

1.           I CHASTISED the NOVICE pizza maker when he mistakenly put anchovies all over my cheese-only pizza.
2. After Wanda ENCROACHED on me while I was eating, I CHASTISED her severely.  But she apologized, and she gave me a cookie, so I was PACIFIED.
3. I LAMENTED the day I found out my LINEAGE included a serial killer.
4. Mr. Zieglowsky may seem FORMIDABLE to some people, but he isn’t BELLICOSE.  He’d rather PACIFY someone than argue.
5. After her IMPUDENT behavior, I had to CHASTISE her so she would realize she shouldn’t make fun of other people.
6. The fact that I had to drive a CIRCUITOUS route to work every day was the CATALYST for me buying a new car.

Vocab Daily Work  (This should look like the sentence models I showed you.)
1.      Head your paper “VOCABULARY CONNECTIONS, 9/22), and put your name on it!
2.     Grading:  I will be looking for FIVE well-written connection sentences in your notes for a daily grade.
3.     Put your Vocabulary Connections in the drawer when you’re done
4.     Study on quizlet  for the mid-term vocab test tomorrow, until I stop you.
