    Re: Are these sentences correct?

    1.Write a diary entry expressing how you felt (at) being punished (at) school for not doing your science homework on time.
    As you see, we now have two 'at's. However, we can omit the first one, so that the sentence becomes:
    Write a diary entry expressing how you felt being punished (at) school for not doing your science homework on time.

    2.I hope our new teacher is not stern
    (Most children would use the word, "strict")
    3.I shall tell about my having quite a large family.
    (In casual speech, we would say:"I'll tell about being part of quite a large family.")

    or
    I will tell you about my quite large family. (omit the 'a')
    4.What is the rhyme scheme of this poem? Correct
