This week for spelling homework the boys came up with a list of twenty words that had given them difficulty throughout the year. The homework is as follows: On Tuesday night the boys have to write the words on a separate sheet of paper and on Wednesday night they have to make a few sentences that use the words. The sentences can be related or not, but the sentences may have as many spelling words as the boys can fit in comfortably. An example of the homework for Wednesday night (using just 49 words) may be seen below. The spelling words are in red in case any student loses his list.The homework for Thursday night is to study for Friday's test.
Last August, on a fine Wednesday morning, I received an exciting surprise present wrapped in acorn-related tissue paper! It was fresh Arctic vegetables probably from my friend the squirrel. Usually these vegetables can only be found in the month of February in a different country with a lower temperature.
