Spelling word list

The week of May 12-16 included a list with the following words:
routine, through, you, soup, group, wound, coupon, youth, throughway, throughout, childhood, should, able, board, seat
Bonus:
Egypt, sarcophagus, pyramid, Nile River

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

One day I will be able to visit Egypt. I want to board a ship and travel down the Nile River. From my seat I should see many groups of pyramids.



*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.
