Word of the Week - intrinsic

REMINDER: Each week we give six students a backpack with a gift certificate in it when they can tell us the word, what it means and use it correctly in a sentence.

Please post the word of the week green paper in your classroom.

Last week's winners for the word Isolate:

Amber Black (12), Dominick Lopez (12), Rhian Reyes (11), Joshua Rodriguez (10), Justin Rudisill (12)

Please take a minute to recognize these students if you have them in your class
