Journal Assignment #2: Vocabulary Words

Tonight, I will be posting a blog assignment, based on terminology and definitions. There will be vocabulary words, their meanings and some examples down below.

#1: Preserve-to keep fresh, clean, clear. (Ex): It is essential for the park rangers to keep their park preserved for historical and non-historical reasons.

#2: Complex-difficult; challenging. (Ex): The math problem I solved for three hours tonight was complex.

#3: Essential-important, significant. (Ex): We have to understand the essential material over the Civil War because we live in the modern day South and teach it for our children to know what happened in the past and what we can do to prevent anything similar like that, from happening again.

#4: Prioritize-organize, priority. (Ex): Before you drive home tonight, you need to prioritize your work station and throw away any trash that you spot on the counters and floors in your area.

#5: Exponentially-quickly, growth of increase or decrease. (Ex): The crime statistics in Georgia have exponentially elevated.

Journal Assignment #1: Teaching Sentence Structure to Kids

Even though it seems as if I am writing a school assignment, I am not. This blog will not only contain photos, but my daily journal assignments that I enjoy discussing for English and Journalism majors, as well as high students and yearbook staff members.

#1: When you teach children how to write, think of simple vocabulary children can learn and move onto another level if they are ready to be taught a new set of terminology.

#2: Not to mention, teaching them how to shrink their sentences and fill in the blank with vocabulary words is another useful technique how to teach sentence structure to kids

*Now I will provide some examples of incorrect and correct sentences*

A1 (Incorrect): Before bed, mommy was reading me a story about two kids who were best friends who grew up and were split up in middle school because of becoming friends with new kids who came from different schools.

A2 (Correct): Tonight, my mom read a story to me about two kids growing up together as best friends until their separation in middle school due to befriending new kids from different schools districts.

*If my examples are not clear enough,  feel free to comment and I will be happy to explain or blog new examples.
