    What is going on in this picture?
    – There is a grandma that is outside the window that look like she is trying to get in the house because they locked her out the house so is trying to get their attention to get back in the house.
    Why do you say that?
    – I say that because she looks like she is banging on the window to get the attention she needs to get back in the house
    What else do you see?
    -I also see that there 3 dolls sitting on the couch look like they are watching tv and ignoring the grandma so she wont come inside

    Great work, Sherome. You have mastered the style of writing that makes a claim and explains why you have come to a conclusion: (a grandma that is outside the window that look like she is trying to get in the house: II say that because she looks like she is banging on the window). Wunderbar!

    Good start, Issys. You have described very well what you SEE. But don’t explain what you either see or say going on. Can you explain why you think people are trying to get into the house? (Wow! I didn’t see the car!). You could write something like “twpo women have driven up to a country home, and are looking inside trying to get the attention of the people inside who are ignoring them. I say this because I see a silver car, which the women may have used to get to this very mountainous area. I ay that they are trying to get the people’ attention because the women are banging on the glass door….”

    Just a few ideas to bring your writing to the next level, that makes a claim and explains why you have come to a conclusion: (a grandma that is outside the window that look like she is trying to get in the house: II say that because she looks like she is banging on the window). Wunderbar!

    Super! You have described what is going on (vacation) by giving evidence that makes very good sense (“I say vacation b/c it looks calm and relaxing”).

    Dear Jahmere, Good work You have described what is going on ( puppets resembling people) and explained why you say that (a puppet next to a women that looks exactly like her).
