    Got ’em all, Catherine—WITHOUT looking at the answers! Not if I could just translate that to my writing! Great “waker-upper” for Mon. morning! Marge

  3. Good choice of words, Catherine. I got them all, but my students sure wouldn’t. These are the words they consistently miss!

  4. Missed one!–perseverance…hmmmm. I enjoyed the quiz. Great idea, Catherine. This should be a regular feature for the blog!
