• Root Words 

    Instructions: Every 2 weeks you will be given a new list of root words. On a Google Doc you will use each root word in a sentence. Number each sentence 1-25. For example:

    1. The submarine went undetected in the San Francisco Bay for weeks. 

    Make sure you are highlighting and underlining the root word in your sentence. Always have your name and date on your google doc before submitting. You will email your sentences on Fridays to:

    mbigelow@fcusd.org 

    these assignments will be worth 30pts.
