Spelling word list

The week of April 28-May 2 included a list with the following words:
airport, airplane, chair, careful, dare, share, rare, scare, hair, pair, tallest, happier, boat, city, morning
Bonus:
inventions, Chinese, irrigating

Here is the result of Leah and I working together to write the paragraph:

I went to the airport yesterday morning. I watched a pair of airplanes share the runway. They had to be careful. From my chair I can see that the tallest airplane went first.

*If you'd like to play along too*
The instructions for the 2nd grade spelling assignment are as follows: Write a paragraph using 8 of the listed words. You must use details, punctuation and indent. The spelling words are typically underlined in the written form, here I chose to use bold type to highlight the word. We have discovered (from teacher communication) that in a pinch you can pluralize and passive tense the words but we try to refrain from that if we can as it adds to the challenge.
