7th Grade Vocabulary - We need it to "survive"!


Today, 7th graders were introduced to our 7th Grade Vocabulary Program - Survivor Island. Here's an overview:

Each student will receive a nametag (fish, starfish, clam, etc.) to place on the tropical island scene in our classroom. His/her nametag will be able to stay on the island paradise scene as long as he/she does well on the weekly quizzes.

Here's how it works:
Every 2 weeks, you will receive a new list of vocabulary words. You will practice with the words in warm-ups and will complete at least 2 homework assignments from the choice board. At the end of the two weeks, you will take a quiz on your vocabulary list. If you score at least an 80%, you will earn a sticker and be able to stay on the island. However, if you don't earn at least an 80%, you will need to come off of our island oasis and spend the week on the Castaway Cactus. (But you can earn your way back next week!)

At the end of the marking period, if you have earned at least 3 stickers, you will be able to take part in our end-of-the-marking-period celebration.
