    Smile paragraph about Lincoln

    Hello everyone


    Is my answer correct to this task please?
    4. Lincoln was born in Kentucky.
    1. When Lincoln was eight years old, his father lost most of his land in Kentucky.
    7. Lincoln's family moved to Indiana after his father's bankruptcy.
    6. The first winter they spent in Indiana they lived in a house with only three walls; the fourth side was open for a fire.
    2. Lincoln's mother died when he was nine years old.
    3. When Lincoln was nine, his stepmother persuaded his father that Abraham should begin to go to school.
    5. He started school, but it soon closed.

    Task: Write a paragraph with information about Lincoln provided above. While making use of the ready-made sentences above, you may also need to add necessary transitional words or make any other necessary changes in order to turn out an effective paragraph.

    My answer:

    Lincoln was born in Kentucky. When he was eight years old, his father lost most of his land there. Lincoln's family moved to Indiana after his father's bankruptcy. The first winter that they spent in Indiana, they lived in a house with only three walls; the fourth side was open for a fire. Lincoln's mother died when he was nine years old. Soon after, his stepmother persuaded his father that Abraham should begin to go to school. However, the school closed not long after Lincoln's enrollment.


    I tried to accentuate the changes I've made by emboldening them.

    Re: paragraph

    You should have seen in the forum rules that we do not help with homework. Your teacher is not interested in what we can do, only in what you can do. You must do your homework yourself. When you get it back from your teacher, you can come back to us for help if you don't understand any of your teacher's comments or corrections.
