How can you remember the words?

Now that you've learned nine new academic words it's important to practice using them in your writing. Copy each word 5 times in your notebook to help you memorize the proper spelling. Make new sentences for each word and draw a picture that will help you remember the meaning. Many people are visual learners, which means they learn better when they associate a word with a picture or an image. We want to activate all parts of your brain to help improve retention.

There are many different ways to learn. Find a way that works best for you and stick with it to obtain your desired results!
