Ch 7 & 8 Mini-Project for Secret Life of Bees

In chapters 7 & 8, Lily shares that her Sunday school teacher used a name to create a philosophical message. Using the letters of JOY, Mrs. Poole (see pg. 162) creates an acrostic poem that details an amazing message and her philosophy about life . GUESS WHAT? You have to do it, too! Be warned, it is not suppose to be like the DADDY one Lily made with a bunch of adjectives. Yours needs to be a little more philosophical and less descriptive. Here is an example:

Create smiles around you
Help others
Relinguish yourself to the divine
Ignore negativity
Share hugs
Take time for family
Initiate forgiveness
Never lose faith
E
mbrace peace

Here are your rules - it needs to be typed, you can include graphics, it can rhyme if you want, it must be at least 7 letters (if your name is shorter than 7 letters, use the letters of your last name, or use both your first and last name). Have fun with it. This is due Thursday, 2/19 for period 6; 2/20 for periods 1 & 3. THIS IS NOT EXTRA CREDIT!!!

By the way, instead of using my last name, can I use my middle name instead?

Steph, you are on the right track, but if you do it like that, it needs to make sense. On the last few letters, you lost focus.

See you tomorrow.

Do you have to do it like the way Stephanie did, were it flows from word to word in one complete sentence. Or can i do indivdual ones for each letter of my name?? Sorta like you did for the example.
