SAT 50 ~ top 50 SAT words

HAVE you been reviewing the SAT 50?  If not, check out the vocab app found on the April 4 blog entry.  We will be doing SAT 50s every Friday until the end of the school year.  This must be done in class in order for your score to count.

DO NOT CONFUSE THIS WITH THE SESQUIPEDALIAN LIST which you can do at home or anywhere at anytime.  But you can send me only one score per day and it has to be 70% or better.  This  April SAT word challenge ends when April ends...

Read the March 31st entry if you are confused about the instructions for that assignment.
