Write a story, using your best descriptive writing, that depicts how your mom is acting and, at the end, reveals the big secret. Your story must include dialogue so you can practice your dialogue punctuation. However, your story may not include the phrase, "Mom, you're acting strange," or any variation thereof. Don't tell us (the readers) she's acting strange; instead describe it!
Post your final stories, with my corrections, here, by Wednesday, Sept. 17.
