Sample G1 - Myrtle Beach
One time I was staying at the Water Hotel at Myrtle Beach in South Carolina.
My cousin Jimmy, who is thirteen, and I went down to the beach with my
buggyboard. Then we went to the pool, and we tried playing with it in the pool. It

Use the table to make a graph of the number
of words in each of the first thirteen main clauses. Use one column for
each main clause. If a sentence has one main clause, or if the main clause
is the first in a sentence, for each word in the clause color one block
in its column blue. If a main clause is the second (or later) in a compound
sentence, color the blocks light blue.
