I'm writing some responses to some quotes for my English class and I keep writing "I think....." "I think...." "I think......". I haven't written a paper in 7 years, false god help me!

I'm sure trolling on Cm will help,  or do you want us to do your homework again?

Yes, transition words... my kids are learning that good writing uses sentences of varying lengths... some compound sentences... compound subjects and/or compound predicates....  some short sentences.  

Also a variety of sentence types... like questions, statements, commands, and exclaimations.

oh, and sometimes you can flip the sentences around and reverse the subject and the predicate...

for example...

The rain fell quietly on the roof.... or...   Upon the roof, the rain fell quietly.


Good luck!!!   ((and yes, trolling on CM might have helped her... LOL, so stuff it!)
