Rough draft due: Tuesday, May 14

Final copy will be due on Friday, May 17. 

The copy that is due on Tuesday will be a rough draft version.  The students will be given a hardback book to transfer the project in for a final copy to keep.  The students may hand write the project or type it out.  The final copy in the hardback book will be hand written and must include pictures or drawings.

Choice 1:

Write a story that contains 60 of the 200 vocabulary words we studied this year.  I am also looking for the correct usage of 20 different prepositions.

  1. You may write one story with all of the words, or split them up into two different stories.
  2. Underline or highlight all of the vocabulary words and the 20 different prepositions
  3. The story must make sense and flow together.
  4. Make sure your story has characters, setting, conflict or problem, and a solution.
  5. Be prepared to include some graphics in your final project.

Choice 2:

Make a dictionary with all 200 words.

  1. Include all 200 words
  2. Must be in alphabetical order
  3. Each word needs a definition
  4. Put the word in a sentence of your own and underline the vocabulary word
  5. Include a picture or two for each page of the dictionary.

(The rough draft does not have to contain the definitions, as long as they have the sheet that includes all of the definitions.  They will be able to copy the definitions from those pages onto their final copy in the hardback book that I provide them.  In other words, the rough draft needs the words in alphabetical order and each word used in an original sentence)
