Spelling List #21

The Greek and Latin roots for this week are:

aqua(water)

scope(see)

path (feeling/ suffering/ disease)

micro (small)

jur/just (judge, oath, law)

Students need to know the meaning of each root word!

Science

We will continue our study of Science Chapter 6, Electricity. We will be doing a packet page daily with a quiz on the following Tuesday. Students will keep the packet in their homework folder throughout the week so they can review it daily to prepare for the quiz. It will be essential that students study for the quiz. The quiz is not easy!

Reading Vocabulary List #21

Our vocabulary list is the same as the Greek and Latin Roots spelling list. Students will need to know the meaning of the Greek and Latin Roots, the meaning of each word and how to spell them. List lists are available in Quizlet, NeuAnnotate and in the camera roll.
