There are many soccer players who miss free kicks and soccer players hate it when they miss it, it is such a very good chance of scoring a goal! Players like to take free kicks and they are happy when they score but I can teach you how to score a free kick.
Step 1 In order to take a free kick someone has to foul you or do a “hands.” These are the consequences for a free kick. If it’s a really bad foul, you sometime get a yellow card or red card. The yellow card is a warning, but if you already have a yellow card, you get a red card. A red card is like a suspension you thrown out of the game and can’t play the next match.
Step 2 now to take a free kick you have to put the ball on the ground. There will be a wall. A wall is a group of defender that stands shoulder to shoulder. Their job is to block the ball from going in the goal. The maximum amounts of people that can form a wall are 5. You have two choices with a free kick: you can either pass the ball to another player or shoot directly. But if you want to shoot, you either shoot it over the wall because or under because the wall usually jump. I prefer over the wall because it is harder for the goalkeeper.
Step 3 if you decide to shoot it over the wall you kick the ball not so hard because you will miss it. Or if you want to curve it, you have to barely touch it, and touch it with inside of your foot. Sometimes you can shoot it through the wall, which is the hardest for you and the goalkeeper. If you pass to your teammate and he can score. Or you can cross it which is a type of pass but in the air. The cross is usually used to pass when you are far from your teammate.
Now you know how to score a free kick. But beware that you are not always going to score. You can’t score a free kick, only by luck.
In this third expository text, the focus is on the writing traits Ideas and Organization. The students have to explain in 3 steps how to do something. The language has to be clear and functional. The concept of sentence fluency was introduced (but not practiced yet), and students are encouraged to work with different sentence length while using conjunctions, which they have been practicing with in their grammar log. The presentation is slowly becoming second nature, indicating that certain formatting skills are mastered.
