Homework: Holiday Smells. For English this week, you are to concentrate on the smells of the holidays. Make a list of all the smells that you associate with the holidays. Then choose one of the smells and develop two paragraphs about that one smell. Perhaps you will want to explain where you are when you find the smell, or maybe you’ll want to tell what you are doing or who is with you. try to make your reader actually experience that smell. Use figurative language to make you descriptions vivid. Be sure to use a good topic sentence that will interest us and make us want to read your paragraphs.
