  1. I really enjoy dancing because i spend time with my family and friends.When we dance we exercise.We stay healthy by moving and get stronger.If we dance i have a song.My favorite song is slide to the left.When we dance we hang out with our family,and friends.We get closer to each other by dancing and having fun with each other.Moving is my favorite thing to do with all my loved ones.

    • Graciela, nice start. Make sure to mention briefly the THREE reasons (evidence) in your topic sentence. You only talk about family and friends. Also, make sure to leave a space between sentences. – Mr. A

  2. I like baseball because you can hit the ball and run the bases. first you have fun you can slide, throw,catch, you can also make a homerun.next make a home run you get to run the bases without getting out and the people on the bases make it home so do you.finally hit the ball you can get the other players to score.you can try to be safe by slidding and touching the base.this is why i like baseball and why it is fun to play.

    • Jeremy, good start. There are quite a few corrections you have to make. First, your topic sentence talks about hitting the ball and running bases BUT in your first evidence sentence, you write about sliding, throwing, catching and making home-runs. What you write about in your topic sentence has to appear in the yellow EVIDENCE sentences.
      You have to make a choice and change your TS or change your EVIDENCE sentences.

  3. I really enjoy playing soccer because its fun,and challenging.I like the professional soccer players celebrations.The celebrations you can a can do a dance, jump in the air and punch it,or what ever you like.The goals are cool because how you make them.The feeling you get when you make a goal is happy or proud of yourself or them.Most importantly is the kicks.You have to kick it perfectly not too much up,not too weak just right a curve or a straight kick.I like soccer because you can win trophies and play with other people you can win ,tie or lose any one is cool with me.

    • Brian, I really enjoyed your paragraph. Good topic sentence that includes 1) fun 2) challenging but where is 3) ? What’s interesting is that you mention fun an challenging but your yellow and red sentences talk about 1) celebrations 2) making goals 3) kicking the ball. Maybe you need to change your topic sentence? Let’s start there. Mr. A

    • I really enjoy playing soccer because it’s fun, sometimes challenging.First the real soccer players celebration are like.You can do a kind of dance,run on the field do a back flip or just do what you want with your friends.Next is the passing and the dribbling.You have to pass it soft or you will bounce the ball off you partner and when the ball is the air don’t just kick it dribble the ball first so it will not go out.Finally is your kicks.You can not hit the goal keeper in the face you just kick it right don’t get confused by your team and make a goal on your team.When the game is over don’t be like:we won!yeah!!!!! be like good game don’t blame it on your partners because that’s just rude.
