Week 13

Christmas Smells

    For English this week, your are to concentrate on the smells of Christmas.  Make a list of all the smells that you associate with Christmas.  Then choose one of the smells and develop a paragraph about that one smell.

    Perhaps you will want to explain where you are when you find the smell or maybe you will want what you are doing or who is with you.   Choose one idea and stick to the topic.

    Be sure to use a good topic sentence that will interest us and make us want to read your paragraph.  Develop a paragraph with at least five sentences.   Have a concluding sentence that pulls your paragraph together. 



_____1. Have you used a good, clean piece of paper for your final copy?

_____2. Did you stick to the topic?
