Caught 'Ya Vocabulary Words

On each Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, we will be completing "Caught 'yas" in class.  Caught 'yas are based on the book, Caught 'ya, Grammar with a Giggle by Jane Bell Kiester.  A Caught 'ya is  a sentence that needs corrections.  This sentence is posted on the Smart Board daily, and through interaction and student-lead proofreading, students are able to master the mechanics of language while engaging in the proofreading activity.  This helps develop an enjoyable, encouraging, communicative relationship with students based on this learning activity. When students DO NOT get caught making a mistake, they are given tickets to be entered for a drawing and a pizza party at the end of the nine weeks (if selected).

Each sentence has a fun and challenging vocabulary word for students to define though context clues.  Students should record these words on the worksheet that was provided and will be graded periodically.  Occasionally, they will be tested on these words.  See below for the list of vocabulary words:

Definitions are given in class.  They can also be found at http://www.dictionary.com
