By the time you are done with this assignment, you should have learned 26 new words. This is a two-part assignment, by the way.

PART 1: Look through the dictionary and then define one word from each letter of the alphabet. Each selected word should be new to you and appropriate for an English assignment, of course.

PART 2: After you define all 26 words, then you must do one of the following:

*Write one sentence for each of the 26
words. Make sure that you use each
word correctly.


*Use at least 12 of those 26 words in a
story. Underline each of those 12 selected
words in your story.

OK! It's now time to start perusing the dictionary and selecting those new words to enhance your vocabulary!
