What is a clarifying sentence? I have to use my spelling words and write a clarifying sentence including contex clues????
I believe that it is a sentence that clarifies the meaning of the word. But you could probably look it up on google or something.
A clarifying sentence is one in which you show that you know the meaning of the word.
For instance, you shouldn't just say: The ao dai was beautiful.
A clarifying sentence would be:
Vietnamese high school girls wear long, white tunics, called ao dais over flowing white pants.
Give one of your spelling words and I'll show you an example of a clarifying sentence.
