False and True

by Nancy Casey

Before you write this page, draw a line at the top where the title will go. You will figure out a good title after you have finished writing.

Set off some space where an illustration will go. It’s always good to add a picture or some doodles to your page. Drawing can help you think up what to write. A bit of color makes your page more interesting to look at.

Today you will write short paragraphs. Paragraphs that are exactly three sentences long…

  • One of the sentences must be true.
  • One of the sentences must be false.
  • One of the sentences can be either true or false—your choice.

The sentences can be in any order. You can start with a sentence that’s true. Or you can start with something false.

Maybe you will write two true sentences and a false one. Maybe two of your sentences will be false and only one of them true.

If another person were to read your page, maybe they will be able to tell what’s true and what’s false—or maybe they won’t.

Write as many of these three-sentence paragraphs as you can fit on the page.

When you have finished writing, reread your work. Make small changes if you need to. When you are satisfied with the page, give it a title and write the date on it, too. Here is an example of what someone could write.

You can share your work by posting it as a comment below. You can type it in, or take a photo of it and upload the image.
