  4. Write a THESIS Statement. Subject + OpinionThe thesis statement is the of the essay. It goes at the end of the introduction paragraph. Thesis Statement: The Thesis Statement tells the reader what the essay is going to be about. It is an opinion that sounds like a fact. Example: Henry + gets into too much trouble. Subject Opinion

  5. THESIS Statement =Subject + OpinionGood or Bad… You Decide!!Write each sentence down. Circle the Subject and underline the opinion.. If the sentence is good. If you looked up “cute” in the dictionary, you would see a picture of Henry. Soon I will adopt another cat. Chocolate is delicious. Kittens are adorable. Dogs are a man’s best friend. You are off your rocker if you like reptiles. My dream is to become a cat whisperer.

  6. Remember the thesis…Henry + gets into too much trouble.Subject OpinionGO!=Write a Topic Sentence.Each topic sentence tells the reader what the paragraph will be about and PROVES the thesis. Topic sentence: The main idea or topic of the body paragraph is stated. It proves the thesis statement. Example: One way Henry causes trouble is that he pigs out on food. Use a transition to begin.

  7. Yellow = SLOW DOWN! Give a reason, detail, or fact. Use a transition! Reason, Detail, Fact: Give the reader a main reason, detail, or fact that relates to and supports the topic sentence. Use a transition to start these sentences. Example: First, Henry tries to steal Ava’s food at meal times.

  8. Red = STOP! Explain and give an example. Explain, Example: Give an example for the statement made in the previous reason, detail, fact sentence (yellow). Use a transition word! Example: For example, often Henry tries to push Ava out of the way when she attempts to eat food out of her bowl, even after he has gobbled down his own food. This causes Ava to become nervous as she eats.

  9. Red = STOP! Explain and give an example. Explain, Example: Give an example for the statement made in the previous reason, detail, fact sentence (yellow). Use a transition word! Example: Secondly, Henry has also been known to tip over the food container to steal additional food once his own meal has been eaten. This also disrupts Ava and it causes a mess.

  10. Yellow = SLOW DOWN! Give a reason, detail, or fact. Use a transition! Reason, Detail, Fact: Give the reader a main reason, detail, or fact that relates to and supports the topic sentence. Use a transition to start these sentences. Example: Another way that Henry demonstrates his overactive appetite is that he constantly begs for food.

  11. Red = STOP! Explain and give an example. • Explain, Example: Give an example for the statement made in the previous reason, detail, fact sentence (yellow). Use a transition word! • Example: For example, Henry wakes me up in the morning with a piercing yowl directed into my ear to tell me that he is ready for breakfast. If I don’t get up immediately to feed him, he begins to walk back and forth across the bed continuing to yowl, making it impossible for me to sleep.

  12. Red = STOP! Explain and give an example. Explain, Example: Give an example for the statement made in the previous reason, detail, fact sentence (yellow). Use a transition word! Example: In addition to yowling for food, Henry also runs directly to his food dish every time I walk around the house. If he thinks there is any chance I am going to feed him, he runs ahead of me and often trips me in the process.

  13. Yellow = SLOW DOWN! Give a reason, detail, or fact. Use a transition! Reason, Detail, Fact: Give the reader a main reason, detail, or fact that relates to and supports the topic sentence. Use a transition to start these sentences. Example: Finally, Henry’s enthusiasm for food has forced me to have to monitor how much he eats.

  14. Red = STOP! Explain and give an example. Explain, Example: Give an example for the statement made in the previous reason, detail, fact sentence (yellow). Use a transition word! Example: For instance, because of Henry’s weight, at his yearly check-up, the vet indicated that I need to put Henry on a diet to prevent him from getting feline diabetes.

  15. Red = STOP! Explain and give an example. Explain, Example: Give an example for the statement made in the previous reason, detail, fact sentence (yellow). Use a transition word! Example: Consequently, to prevent Henry from indulging in too much food, I give him less food than I do Ava and I watch him while he eats so he does not eat more than he should.

  16. Green = GO BACK! Write a concluding sentence. The concluding sentence summarizes your paragraph and allows you to state an opinion about the information! (Relate it back to your thesis.) concluding sentence = summary and opinion, referring back to thesis Concluding Sentence: Remind the reader of your topic by restating what the composition was about. Use a transition word! concluding sentence = summary and opinion Example: Therefore, not only does Henry eat too much, but he also causes inconveniences to me and to Ava in his haste to devour his food.

  17. Now put it all together! Remember the thesis: Henry + gets into too much trouble.One way Henry causes trouble is that he wants food all of the time.First, Henry tries to steal Ava’s food at meal times. For example, often Henry tries to push Ava out of the way when she attempts to eat food out of her bowl, even after he has gobbled down his own food. This causes Ava to become nervous as she eats. Secondly, Henry has also been known to tip over the food container to steal additional food once his own meal has been eaten. Thisalsodisrupts Ava and it causes a mess. Another way that Henry demonstrates his overactive appetite is that he constantly begs for food. Specifically, Henry wakes me up in the morning with a piercing yowl directed into my ear to tell me that he is ready for breakfast. If I don’t get up immediately to feed him, he begins to walk back and forth across the bed continuing to yowl, making it impossible for me to sleep. In addition to yowling for food, Henryalsoruns directly to his food dish every time I walk around the house. If he thinks there is any chance I am going to feed him, he runs ahead of me and often trips me in the process. Finally, Henry’s enthusiasm for food forces me to constantly monitor how much he eats. For instance, because of Henry’s weight, at his yearly check-up, the vet indicated that I needed to put Henry on a diet to prevent him from getting feline diabetes. Consequently, to prevent Henry from indulging in too much food, I give him less food than I do Ava and I watch him while he eats so he does not eat more than he should. Therefore, not only does Henry eat too much, but he alsocauses inconveniences to me and to Ava in his haste to devour his food.
