Good Morning, every body,
I miss you soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much. In the first exercise we must add full punctuation (full stops, commas, capital letters, question marks, etc...) and correct spelling. In the second exercise I actually can't understand anything.
Best Wishes,

Hi everybody! I think this isn't a practice for writing a story and we shouldn't write a story because Ms.Batte didn't say that. In the first exercise, we are supposed to correct punctuation, spelling etc... In the analogies as Ahmed said we're supposed to see are words related. I don't know the rest but in the last exercise we should choose a matching word from word bank that is under each sentence. I hope this helps.

Best wishes,
Ali

Hi, Mahmoud ElKady,
I miss you sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much along with the whole class. I looked the word connotation in the dictionary and I tried to understand what Miss Batte put for us but I can't understand anything, even when I looked the word. First, The miss writes different numbers 1, 4, 2, 3, 7, 6, 8, and it isn't clear. Second, I can't understand what a positive and negative connotation is. Nothing is clear at all. Do you think you can explain it for me.
Best Wishes,
Hashem Elezabi

The word connotation means"An idea expressed by a word in addition to its main meaning". For an example the word spinster means an unmarried woman but it has negative connotations, because spinster means an unmarried , old fashioned woman. Rather than saying a single woman, which is a positive connotation, you should say the word spinster, which is a negative connotaion, if the sheet ask you for a negative connotation. Concerning the mixed up numders(which I asume is a puzzle) just right down your answers and forget about the numbers completly. You will find words and it's connations mixed up together, all you have to do is to match correctly. This is what I have done. I hope I helped you! Smile Wink Cool
