Step One:

Start with this sentence:  "Mr. Smith is celebrating."

Answer the following questions to change the rather boring "Mr. Smith is celebrating" into a much more interesting paragraph (3-4 sentences...or more):
  • Who is Mr. Smith?
  • What does he do when he celebrates?
  • When does he celebrate?
  • Why does he celebrate?
  • How does he celebrate?

Step Two:

Use the reporter's formula to revise one of the following sentences:
  • Mortimer is funny.
  • Grunhilda is athletic.
  • I enjoy school.
  • Millicent likes eggs.
Write your questions on your paper, then write your paragraph.
