For my homework I had to look at any Time For Kids magazine to find different sentences or stories that had the "Six Writing Tips". I chose the story of To Young to Work, the story had many different kinds of examples of the writing tips.
Below I have put the writing tips and examples that I got from TFK.
Ideas and Content: (Do I have enough details?)
Valdemar Balderas was 12 when he started working in the field of Minnesota and North Dekota.
I think that this shows Ideas and Content because it tells all the detials that we should know for the begining of the story.
Organization: (Is my detials easy to read?)
Together,Valdemar and his parents earned $500 dollars a week for their hard work.
I think that this is a good part organization because it shows how they organized the writing to show that him and his parent got money for their hard work.
Voice: (Did I give my opinion?)
"It's alot of hard work " Valdemar told TFK. He tells his opinion aboutthe work he does.
Word Choice: (Did I use different or interesting words?)
Every April, his family journeys north to begin months of geuling farmwork. He tells a different word such as journeys instead of saying goes.
Sentence Fluency: (Did I use complete Sentences?)
Many countries don't have laws to protect child laborers. This is extrodinary because he or she says what needs to be said and he gets it done.
Conventions: (Did I use correct punctuatation?)
Valdemar,now 14,lives in Eagle Pass, Texas. He uses the right kind of parts of speech such as commas and periods exactly where they are needed.
