Congratulations, Kids! You've completed learning the next round of vocabulary words, and now it's time to review.

Hear It!

started

Which Means:

Began, having begun something.

As In:

Image Jordan finished his popcorn before the movie even started!

Heads Up!

The suffix -ED comes at the end of this word; it tells us that the action of the verb is over.

Hear It!

until

Which Means:

Up to a certain point in time.

As In:

Image Caleb was supposed to wait until after supper to eat the cake!

Heads Up!

Until is only spelled with one L at the end. 'Till' is spelled with two, and means the same thing.

Hear It!

named

Which Means:

Called and identified by a special word.

As In:

Image What is your baby brother named?

Heads Up!

The base verb of 'named' is what?

Hear It!

looked

Which Means:

To have seen with the eyes.

As In:

Image Hector looked at the spider on the ceiling to make sure it wasn't moving toward him.

Heads Up!

It takes a double O (like two eyes!) to spell 'looked' correct, plus the ED ending.

Hear It!

school

Which Means:

A building where you go to learn things from teachers, books, and classmates.

As In:

Image School is...you guessed it...COOL!

Heads Up!

Although 'school' sounds like it should be spelled 'skool', the K sound is spelled CH.
