English 9 Vocabulary
Please watch the video below for the definitions to your vocabulary words and the roots, prefixes, and suffixes that give the words their meaning. As you watch, make the weekly vocabulary foldable and tape it into the vocabulary section of your interactive notebook. Because I made these videos last year and the interactive notebooks were set up slightly differently, the page number for your foldable will be different from the video. Please tape your foldable onto page 118 of your notebook, not page 120 as it says in the video.
If you still need to make your root word foldable before it is due on Monday, 9/19, check out the video below. Need to download the root word foldable template? Click here!

English 10 Vocabulary
Since you are sophomores this year, your vocabulary will be on words that are commonly found on the ACT, SAT, and ASVAB assessments. These are also good words to use when writing essays for other classes or for standardized assessments. Every week, you will create a vocabulary foldable to use as a study guide. Then, you will tape or glue these foldables into the vocabulary section of your interactive notebook to refer back to later. These foldables will be due every Monday as you take your weekly quiz. Remember, if there are multiple definitions to each word, copy both definitions onto your foldable. Check out this week’s vocabulary words below:

Since you only have eight words every week instead of ten, you will only need eight sections. Also, instead of naming your foldable “Vocab 1.1,” simply title it Vocab 1.
