Word of the Week



Meaning: something not done on purpose or someone or something that is left out on purpose.


Example of using it in a sentence “Sophia has exceeded her homework this week and started some of next week’s units."


This Latin word has too parts the prefix ‘ex-’ means thoroughly and the root ‘cept’ means ‘’taken” and the ‘tions’ means ‘taking the action’. So, the word means “we are thoroughly taking something out from a group of things”.


Spelling tip: we are breaking the word up like this just as we say it.


                                                               ex + cep + tions


Use the word as many times throughout the week. This can be verbally, in your written work or listen out for other people using it.
