Test your knowledge of this past week's vocab homework by identifying which word fits each of the following five entries. Your answers should also explain why. Words may be used more than once, and one entry may have more than one answer. No cheating!!!
11.Between my finger and my thumb The squat pen rests; snug as a gun
N. Number 2
22.Fountain, coolest fountain,
Cool fountain of love,
Where all the sweet birds come
For comforting-but one,
A widow turtledove,
At once the nightingale,
That wicked bird, came by,
And spoke these honied words:
"My lady, if you will,
I shall be your slave."
"You are my enemy:
Begone, you are not true!"
Green boughs no longer rest me,
Nor any budding grove.
Clear springs, where there are such,
Turn muddy at my touch.
I want no spouse to love
Nor any children either.
I forego that pleasure and their comfort too.
No, leave me; you are false
And wicked-vile, untrue!
I'll never be your mistress!
I'll never marry you!
33.Ascend from childhood and become independent. He measured his weight and also his height. She kept the letter, but accidentally dropped it later.
44.As spring did pass into summer’s full bloom
To stand with arms outstretched in seasons all
As the seasons knit like the weaving loom
Through the cold of winter, strong through to fall

Have fun ;-)
Cool face of the river
Asked me for a kiss.
2014!!!!! Woohoo!!! Your year has finally arrived! I am so excited about this school year. I have very high expectations for each of you, and I know that with a positive attitude and endurance, you ALL will be successful. I know you are counting down the days til graduation, but I need you to remember that it is not over yet. You still have courses to complete before you can be an official part of that glorious day. It is too early for Senioritis to kick-in. Trust me, if you come to school already experiencing Senioritis, your time in Senior English will not be fun. I want us to have a great educational year, so come ready! I am :-) Mrs. Kennell-Foster
