WHAT IS SPLASHING???? Splashing is a way to develop an idea within an expository paper. It provides elaboration!!!! Splash here, splash there, but NOT everywhere!

4 TYPES OF SPLASHES A stands for ANECDOTE – a personal mini story about when you did something.
4 TYPES OF SPLASHES F stands for FACT – a fact about something, must sound realistic, may start with “studies show”, “doctors say” (or some expert).
4 TYPES OF SPLASHES E stands for EXAMPLE – a mini story about when someone else does something ( You can make it up.) –....could be a relative, a friend, something from history, a book/movie, song lyrics, T.V. show…….
NOW, TRY TO THINK OF CAFÉ FOR THIS TOPIC. READ: ORDER IS THE SANITY OF THE MIND, THE HEALTH OF THE BODY, THE PEACE OF THE CITY, THE SECURITY OF THE STATE. LIKE BEAMS IN A HOUSE OR BONES TO A BODY, SO IS ORDER TO ALL THINGS. ROBERT SOUTHEY THINK: WITHOUT ORDER OR ORGANIZATION, LIFE CAN BE QUITE FRUSTRATING. WRITE: WRITE AN ESSAY ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING ORGANIZED.ROBERT SOUTHEY
LET’S TRY TOGETHER We have all heard, “Make a good first impression.” Sometimes first impressions are incorrect but affect how we think or feel about a person for years to come. Think about times you have judged someone based on your first impression of them. Write about how to make a good first impression.
Studies show that the first impression is the most important impression. Use a firm grip when shaking a person’s hand. Look the person straight in the eye. Once, when I met a person for the first time, I was facing the bright sun. I kept squinting and looking down. Later we became friends, and the person confided to me that he thought I was not friendly, because I kept looking down.
Always comb your hair before meeting someone you do not know. Once, my sister was excluded from a club, because she went for a meeting with the officers of that club without washing her hair. They did not want a person to represent their club with dirty, oily hair. Be sure to smile. A warm smile not only makes the person comfortable, it makes them know you are a friendly, fun person.
TRY IT ON YOUR OWN – ON THE BOTTOM OF YOUR NOTES NUMBER 1-4. YOU WILL DECIDE WHICH OF THE FOLLOWING EXAMPLES ARE CAUTION, ANECDOTE, FACT OR EXAMPLE Sports and games are important to many people. They provide physical and mental stimulation. Think about an activity that impacts your life. Write an essay about a sport or a game that people enjoy. Be sure to explain why people enjoy that activity.
1. I have watched numerous chess matches on the internet, and still am puzzled on how far the masters think ahead. 2. Studies show that if you play chess, you will do better in math.
3. Always try to castle in the first few moves to get in an offensive position. 4. My nephew, Jeremy, makes moves very quickly – BING, BANG, PLOP! He learned from the men in New York City playing speed chess.
Divide the back of your notebook paper into 4 sections. Label them C.A.F.E. * Sports and games are important to many people. They provide physical and mental stimulation. * Think about an activity that impacts your life. * Write an essay about a sport or a game that people enjoy. Be sure to explain why people enjoy that activity.
