Pet Coon, The

James Whitcomb Riley Indiana University Press ePub

NOEY Bixler ketched him, and fetched him in to me

When he’s ist a little teenty-weenty baby-coon

’Bout as big as little pups, an’ tied him to a tree;

An’ Pa gived Noey fifty cents, when he come home at noon.

Nen he buyed a chain fer him, an’ little collar, too,

An’ sawed a hole in a’ old tub an’ turnt it upside-down;

An’ little feller’d stay in there and won’t come out fer you—

Tendin’ like he’s kindo’ skeered o’ boys ’at lives in town.

Now he aint afeard a bit! he’s ist so fat an’ tame,

We on’y chain him up at night, to save the little chicks.

Holler “Greedy! Greedy!” to him, an’ he knows his name,

An’ here he’ll come a-waddle-un, up fer any tricks!

He’ll climb up my leg, he will, an’ waller in my lap,

An’ poke his little black paws ’way in my pockets where

They’s beechnuts, er chinkypins, er any little scrap

Of anything, ’at’s good to eat—an’ he don’t care!

An’ he’s as spunky as you please, an’ don’t like dogs at all.—

Connotation and Denotation

Basic Skills Practice

Connotation and Denotation

Did you know that all words have both connotations and denotations? A word’s dictionary meaning is its denotation. Connotation refers to the attitudes and feelings the word suggests. Words with similar dictionary definitions can have very different connotations.

Persuasive writers choose words carefully.

They make sure the connotations of their key words support their point of view.

A. In each item below, think about

the viewpoint the writer wishes to promote. Circle the word that correctly completes each sentence.

positive

negative

thrifty

cheap

proud

haughty

slim

skinny

unique

eccentric

1. You’re writing a campaign speech for a candidate who is unusually frank and honest. You describe the candidate as ( plainspoken / blunt ).

2. You’re writing ad copy for an expensive necklace. You describe the necklace as ( flimsy / delicate ).

3. You’re writing an essay about a historical figure you admire. You describe her personality as ( unsociable / shy ).

4. You’re writing a newspaper editorial urging that a new sports stadium be built in your town. You describe citizen support as ( enthusiastic / fanatic ).

James Whitcomb Riley Indiana University Press ePub

THE BOY lives on our Farm, he’s not

Afeard o’ horses none!

An’ he can make ’em lope, er trot,

Er rack, er pace, er run.

Sometimes he drives two horses, when

He comes to town an’ brings

A wagon-full o’ ’taters nen,

An’ roastin’-ears an’ things.

Two horses is “a team,” he says,

An’ when you drive er hitch,

The right-un’s a “near-horse,” I guess

Er “off”—I don’t know which—

The Boy lives on our Farm, he told

Me, too, ’at he can see,

By lookin’ at their teeth, how old

A horse is, to a T!

I’d be the gladdest boy alive

Ef I knowed much as that,

An’ could stand up like him an’ drive,

An’ ist push back my hat,

Like he comes skallyhootin’ through

Our alley, with one arm

A-wavin’ Fare-ye-well! to you—

The Boy lives on our Farm!

Stitchy Stripy Watchband

Annabel Wrigley FunStitch Studio ePub

easy peasy

Stitchy Stripy Watchband

What Do I Need?

An old watch face with a watchband bar or a watch face from a craft store (I used a watch face with a 1˝ bar. The watch bar is the little bar on each side of the watch face where a strap is normally attached. Use a tape measure or ruler to measure the length of the bar; that will help you decide how wide your fabric should be.)

4˝ × 22˝ strip of fun fabric

4˝ × 22˝ strip of featherweight fusible interfacing

Fun-colored thread to coordinate with the fabric

Snap kit (which includes a snap tool and size 15 or 16 snaps)

Hammer (to use with the snap tool)

Basic sewing supplies

special skills

•Refer to The Rules of Sewing

• Using an iron

Prepare the Pieces

1.Measure your wrist by wrapping the measuring tape around your wrist twice. The watchband will be super long, so you can wrap it around your wrist twice! Decide on a length that is not too tight and will allow the 2 ends to overlap at least 1˝ and still feel comfortable. Write down that measurement.
