Homework prompts

Every Thursday Dominic comes home with his paragraph book. Each page has a prompt and some questions to guide him. The students are supposed to expound on the questions and then write a paragraph. Here was the prompt from today:

If you were a professional sports star...

His paragraph is as follows:


If I were a professional sports player I would be a wrestler. It would work for me because I am very strong and fast and a quick thinker. I think I would make lots of money because I would wrestle strong, big guys that can push hard. I would always sign autographs for free. I think I would do healthy snack commercials to make you stronger and beat people easier. Id probably have to stop wrestling at the age of 40 because its just too old and you could get beat up too easily. When I'm done I would be an author for wrestling books. That's why wrestling would be a good sport for me.


I love it I love it I love it!
