    • DIRECTIONS FOR VOCABULARY STORY-1) typed or handwritten is accepted, but words must be bolded, underlined, or highlighted 2) story may be about any topic, so long as it is school appropriate. 3) words may be changed so they fit logically in the story e.g. excess –> excessive 4) words must be used accurately in the sentence with context clues to help show your understanding of the word’s meaning 5) one page in length
    • DIRECTIONS FOR ILLUMINATED LETTERS-1) typed, handwritten, or combination of each is acceptable. To that effect, work may be completed on Word or Power Point and submitted electronically, but must be a file compatible to be read on a PC. Page be oriented either way. 2) one word per one piece of computer paper, Power Point slide, or Word document. I will not accept on lined paper. 3) For each, include the following requirements: word written largely, definition, part of speech, used correctly in a sentence, connotation (positive, negative, or neutral,) and illustration to represent the definition as part of the word instead of a picture off to the side. No points will be earned for the word if it is missing any of the required elements. 5) for examples and answers to more FAQ view the Illuminated Letters Power Point.
