Word of the Day
Today’s Words of the Day are statue and statute, both nouns.
-Statue: a carved or cast figure of a person or animal, especially one that is life-size or larger
Example: I always like to visit the statue of the Native American warrior near Grant Park.
-Statute: a law or rule.
The official book of our state’s laws is called the Illinois Compiled Statutes.
Use these words correctly in class today and you will get a smile from your teacher—and possibly some extra credit.
Yesterday’s Word of the Day Sentence Contest award winner was Frank Passantino. He joins Ken Munoz and Brielle Gilliard in the race to win a Starbuck’s card. Want to get your name into the mix?

You may have some free coffees in your future!
