Today’s Wordly Wise assessment contains analogies.  If you are not familiar with this type of question, take a minute to look this information over before you begin the assessment.

The first thing you will need to know is what the symbols mean.   : = is to and :: = as

For example, you would read the following analogy ” a fish : water :: a tiger : land” as “a fish is to water as a tiger is to land.”

(This analogy is showing the relationship between these words because a fish lives in the water and a tiger lives on land.)

Analogies can show the relationship between a number of ideas.  You are going to want to look closely at the relationship between the words in the first part of the analogy so that you can determine which words are the correct answer in the second part of the analogy.

Here are a couple of other examples:

  • hot coffee : winter :: cold water : summer
  • in : out :: up : down
  • word : sentence :: page : book
  • eye : sight :: teeth : chew

Wordly Wise Assessment #2

Today’s EQ:  Where can I find evidence of my learning? 

Following the word study assessment, you should:

  1. First, log into Infinite Campus to check your grades and see if you have any missing assignments, and take a look at upcoming assignments.
  2. Get clarification about any missing and upcoming work.
  3. Then, if you are all caught up, work on your e-Portfolio.
    • Review the rubric and expectations about the portfolio presentations
    • Consider how you would like to present your understanding of the purpose of the Personal Essay unit.
    • Add documents, links, and other artifacts to the portfolio.
    • Customize and personalize your portfolio.

Note, while your first portfolio presentation will be on the Personal Essay unit, you can also add to your Independent Reading section as well.
