Quick write: words, words, words!

On Day 5 and 6 this week (Friday and Monday), we’ll be putting words in sentences and making sure that we use correct conventions. Conventions are things like punctuation, capital letters and spelling. I’ve chosen three words this week that are both math terms and terms that can be used in other, non-mathematical ways. (If you don’t already have one, get a writing notebook from Mr. Creighton or Ms. Khanna).

Depending on what grade you are in, please write at least one grammatically correct sentence that uses your word:

  • Sixth graders, please use divide in an interesting way.
  • Seventh graders, please use negative in an interesting way.
  • Eighth graders, please use constant in an interesting way.

Those who want a challenge can write try to use all three words in one or more sentences! It would be great to see some of you post your sentences on the blog.

    It was the first day of The Tree Woods summer camp. The coordinator divided us in two groups. Sadly, my friend and I weren’t on the same group. This made my friend very upset that she didn’t wanted to participate in the activities. But when she had to participate, she would have a negative attitude. Meanwhile, I wasn’t mad for long that I wasn’t with my friend because my group made me constantly laugh with their jokes that my sadness vanished as the day went on.

  2. I had a piece of cake which I didvided into 10 pieces for my friends. The temperature outside my house though, was negative 2 degrees centigrade. The snow, which was visible while I was dividing the cake, was falling at a constant rate.

    • Kabir,

      I really enjoyed reading this. I wasn’t sure if I was in a word problem or a prose poem, but it was fun either way!

  3. My mom constantly told me not be negative.
    I had to divide fifteen apple pies, and I had to divide their among my three friends.
