Scribe Monday 9-17-12 Period 5

     Today being western day, Mrs. Smith declared from the doorway "Today say howdy!". As she

walked into the classroom a dull "Howdy Smith" arose. After one more try, she was satisfied with the

amount of joy in the greeting. After that, we went over SAT 3, due Friday. Exercise 1 is words in 

context, exercise 2 is sentence completion, exercise 3 is roots, prefixes, and suffixes, exercise 4 is 

inferences, and we are only doing the second part of exercise 5: improving paragraphs. The words are

pedestrian, bona fide, adventitious, fecund, deviate, obfuscate, impale, extenuate, parochial, glower, 

edify, ambiguous, cataclysm, optimum, and inportune. There will be a test over the words, definitions,

and parts of speech on Friday. We also discussed Lamb to the Slaughter by Roald Dahl. Some

questions we discussed were "What did Mr. Maloney do to make Mrs. Maloney kill him?", "Why did

Roald Dahl write this story?", and "What kind of social change with Roald Dahl trying to inspire with

this story?". Next, we attempted to listen to the song We Didn't Start the Fire by Billy Joel. However, 

the audio wasn't working so we are listening to it tomorrow. Lastly, we peer evaluated our memoirs.
