Video Lessons of the Day:
Learn about PREFIXES!
It's like a remix.
It changes things,
Like what a word means.
You can find 'em at the front of a word.
Learn 'em, you need 'em,
To figure out words and their meanings. (x2)
Prefixes are an important part,
They tell you about a word, right from the start.
When you see non- or un-, that means not,
Like unintelligent or the word nonstop.
It's a few more for not, that I'll hit you with,
Il-, if you can't read, then you're illiterate.
Inactive? No. Not moving,
Impossible is something you cannot be doing.
Irrational - you should have thought a bit,
Dis- and de- mean opposite.
If you disagree, well hey, that's cool,
But your whole style gets devalued.
The prefix anti- means against,
You're antisocial if you don't have friends.
Here comes the intermission, everybody sing,
'Cause inter- means between and the hook's here, see?
Allow me to reintroduce this word,
'Cause re- means again, let's be sure you heard.
Even the word prefix has a prefix in it,
Pre- means before, man, I hope y'all remembering.
You may ask where they come from,
Most are Greek or Latin, there's a whole bunch of 'em,
Like macro- is large and micro- is small,
Mono- is one. Are you hearin me, y'all?
I could talk in a monotone on a telephone,
And tele- goes the distance just like a telescope.
If you kinda understand that's semi-,
You'll halfway get it till you commit it to memory.
Keep these in your mind's foreground,
'Cause fore- means front and you'll need 'em around.
This song is over and I don't mean ending,
It's overqualified, too much of a good thing

Reading Passage of the Day!
Make sure to put all your answers in complete sentences in your notebook!
Many people like to eat pizza, but not everyone knows how to make it. Making the perfect pizza can be complicated, but there are lots of ways for you to make a more basic version at home.
When you make pizza, you must begin with the crust. The crust can be hard to make. If you want to make the crust yourself, you will have to make dough using flour, water, and yeast. You will have to knead the dough with your hands. If you do not have enough time to do this, you can use a prepared crust that you buy from the store.
After you have chosen your crust, you must then add the sauce. Making your own sauce from scratch can take a long time. You have to buy tomatoes, peel them, and then cook them with spices. If this sounds like too much work, you can also purchase jarred sauce from the store. Many jarred sauces taste almost as good as the kind you make at home.
Now that you have your crust and your sauce, you need to add the cheese. Cheese comes from milk, which comes from cows. Do you have a cow in your backyard? Do you know how to milk the cow? Do you know how to turn that milk into cheese? If not, you might want to buy cheese from the grocery store instead of making it yourself.
When you have the crust, sauce, and cheese ready, you can add other toppings. Some people like to put meat on their pizza, while other people like to add vegetables. Some people even like to add pineapple! The best part of making a pizza at home is that you can customize it by adding your own favorite ingredients.
