1. Name: _________________ #: ____ Date: ______________ Want a Do-Over? Do- Each day we make choices that affect how our day turns out, how we feel, or how we makeothers feel. Think about yesterday or last week. If you could do that day or week over again,what would you do differently? Would you spend more time helping others, or do you wish thatyou had finished your chores so that you could have earned something special? Decide if youwould rather do yesterday or last week over again, then explain what you would do differently andwhy. Take some time to reflect on the choices you made, even if they were small. Brainstorm your ideas on the back of this paper using the questions I provided for you beforestarting your rough draft. After you answer the questions turn them into a paragraph about theday you were a different age. Then have an adult help you edit your rough draft by looking forcapital letters, correct punctuation and grammar, spelling mistakes, and how well you stayed ontopic. Last, rewrite your paragraph in your neatest handwriting or type it up on the computer.Make sure to turn in this sheet, your edited rough draft, and your final copy.REMEMBER: 1. Sentences should start with a capital and end with a period, question mark, or exclamation point. 2. A sentence should be a complete thought or idea. Your paragraph should have at least 6 sentences. 3. Strong sentences have vivid details. 4. Your paragraph should stay on topic and have a topic sentence, detail sentences, and a and concluding sentence. Don’t forget to indent! 5. All words should be spelled correctly. Have an adult proofread your paragraph before turning it in.Here’s an example of my paragraph: If I could do last week over again I would jump at the chance. Not only was last week Thanksgiving break,but it was also a great time to spend with my family. Last week I spent time with my husband and boys, butI also spent a lot of time cleaning the house and getting caught up on chores. I would want to do last weekover again so that I could spend more time doing fun and out of the ordinary excursions with my family. IfI could redo the week I would plan a day trip somewhere fun, like a museum or a new park. I would havealso enjoyed spending some time baking cookies or something else fun to eat with my family. The weekmight have been different if I did those things because I would have felt like I spent more of my breakdoing something fun, rather than the things I always do. It’s a good idea to think about our past choicesbecause we can always make improved ones next time. Maybe I’ll make sure we get to do all of thosethings during winter vacation! Turn to the back to fill out the organizer.
