WORDS USED AS MULTIPLE PARTS OF SPEECH—HOMEWORK DUE ___________________________ **Remember, homework counts as a DOUBLE daily grade, and homework grades are never dropped when I drop your lowest daily grade at the end of the six weeks!** Choose FIVE of the words from the word bank on the BACK OF THIS PAGE. (You MUST use words from the word bank.) Write TWO ORIGINAL sentences for each word in which you use the word as TWO DIFFERENT PARTS OF SPEECH. You’ll have ten sentences total. You must 1) Use a standard highlighter (one of your required supplies) to highlight the word in each sentence that you used from the word bank. This highlighting is part of having the assignment done on time, which means everything—including the highlighting--is complete before the tardy bell rings. 2) IDENTIFY the part of speech (you may abbreviate; use standard abbreviations, which are listed in the word list box) of the identified word by writing the part of speech immediately above the word. PLEASE SKIP LINES IN BETWEEN EACH LINE SO YOUR LABELING IS EASY TO READ. (Your identification of the part of speech can be written on the line in between each sentence; please see the example on the back.) 3) You MAY NOT change the word (i.e. you may not add the suffix “-ly” to make the word an adverb). It must be used correctly and in the form given in the word bank. 4) Use black or DARK blue (not aqua) ink and write on regular notebook paper that is not ripped out of a spiral, and write only on the front side of the paper. Assignments that are completed using pencil or any ink color other than black or dark blue will be penalized ten points. TYPED work will earn five points extra credit as long as you use an easy-to-read, standard font and print in BLACK. If you type, you may complete the highlighting by changing the background color of the word instead of using a regular highlighter. Typed work must be printed and brought to class; it CANNOT be e-mailed to me instead. If printing is a problem, hand write. 5) Use your parts of speech notes to help you! 6) Use correct capitalization and punctuation. Each error will reduce your grade. 7) Not leave this assignment until the last minute…it’s more challenging than it seems, but you can do it because you are INTELLIGENT! Also, waiting until the last minute means you are less likely to pay attention to details in the directions (such as how to format it and what ink colors are approved), and this will result your earning in a lower grade. WORD BANK (suggested parts of speech are in parentheses, but other parts of speech may be possible): n=noun adj.=adjective adv.=adverb v.=verb pro.=pronoun conj.=conjunction inter.=interjection prep.=preposition a. well (inter., n., adv.) b. like (prep., v., adj.) c. what (pro., adj., adv.) d. total (n., adj.) e. part (v., n., adv.) f. key (v., n. adj.) g. while (conj., n.) h. down (adj., prep., adv.) i. so (conj., adv., adj.) j. once (conj., adv.) *REMEMBER: You must not change any of these words; for example, you cannot make nouns plural or verbs past tense. Also, remember that placing the word to in front of a word, such as to like, DOES NOT make the word a verb. This is an infinitive, and infinitives NEVER function as verbs.* (n.)_______________ 1) The teacher told the students to stand in the line quietly. ___ (v.)_____________________________________________ Tulips line the sidewalk.__________________________________ ____________________ ______________________________ (n.)______________________ 2) My English grade might go down the drain if I don’t do this homework. _________ (v.)___________________________________________ Please drain the sink before you leave.______________________ _______________________________________________________ EXAMPLE (Lines indicate lines on your notebook paper.) Continue like this until you have TEN sentences total. Remember, you must HIGHLIGHT (using a HIGHLIGHTER, not a marker, colored pencil, etc.) the word you used in each sentence, and this highlighting MUST be finished in its ENTIRETY by the time the tardy bell rings to begin class on the due date in order for you to earn full credit.
