Jason's Nuclear Family

My classes of freshmen are currently learning about families (nuclear, extended, and two-income), and so I thought it would be fun to learn about their families and for them to project a personality onto my own family. 

So I showed them this picture of my lovely nuclear family

and told them to answer 4 questions:
1) How old is everyone?
2) What personality traits do we have?
3) What do we like to do? Use 3 gerunds (we are also learning about gerunds)
4) How have I changed? My sister? My parents? (We also learned how to form a sentence using "Used to be" and "has become")

I want to get down all of their responses because they are universally precious/hilarious. Mostly precious, though: in class today I was getting emotional reading their responses. 

Misspellings and grammar errors will not be fixed. 

Apologies to my parents who will alternately have their feelings hurt/egos stroked:

I think Jason's family is a nuclear family. It's just his sister, dad, mom, and Jason. His father, he is 60 years old. His mother is 57 years old, his sister is around 21 years old and about him, I think he is 26 years old. Although his family is a little family, it's very lovely. They enjoy camping together in every holiday and some weekend they will have a BBQ party. They're into watching movies at cinema, fishing, shoping and also playing a game card. But they can't stand in a messy house and a quiet party because it feel boring. When Jason stays in Jamaica he never knows Thai food, but now he really love everything which is Thai. His parents used to hate gameshows; now they insist on watching overnight. And about his sister, she used to fat; now she's very slim.

We're a nuclear family. There're my dad, mom, my sister and me. I think my parents are older. My father is 53 years old, my mother is 52 years. They're older in exceed to work. But they love working. My sister is very lovely. She is a little girl. She's 14 years old, everyone loves her, but sometimes she insist on making her decisions. And about me. I'm 18 years old. My birthday is coming soon. I'm very happy, I'm look forward to that day. We're lover. In every weekend, we insist on shopping together. And we don't mind spending money for shopping. We're avoid arguing. I used to shy when I was young, now I has become outgoing. My sister used to skinny, but now she love eating it make her become fat. And my parents used to kind, now they strict more than ever.

8) Pai (F)

Jason's nuclear family has 4 people, there are Jason, his sister and his parents. I think, even it is a small family but it is a lovely and warm family. From the picture, I think that Jason is the youngest in this family. Therefore his sister doesn't look old, she is very baby face. And his parents is propably about 45 years old. This picture was taken a photo in somewhere. So this family may be outgoing and relaxed. It is not so hard to guess that they like going out on vacation, watching TV together and enjoy going to parties on special day. From now that contrast with the past, I think Jason is as the same or have changed just a bit. But I really don't know about his sister and his parents at all.

My family has 4 members. It is just my parents, my sister and me. My parents are about 45 year old. My sister is just 17 years old. And me is 19 years old. Though my family has a little members we aren't always lonely. Because we usually have some activities to do on weekend. So we are friendly and outgoing. We are into going many things to do together on relax day, like shopping sometime and like going out some interesting places. From now on, I don't have changed very much, it just have changed my old...but my face is still baby face! And my parents don't have changed anymore. My sister is the same.

Jason lives with 37 year olds sister, his father is 58 year olds and his mother is 56 year olds. He has a warmth and lovely family. I think his family enjoy taking photo, love traveling together and they are into going out to new restaurants. Now Jason is taller and become enjoy eating guy because of Thai food (which are delicious.) :) His sister and parents may become older but still healthy and strong

I lives with 53 year olds dad, 44 year olds mom and brother who is 13 year olds. My family is an easy family. We love watching the movies, enjoy going out and have dinner together, and also enjoy making Christmas party. I use to have long hair, now my hair has become short, my brother used to be short, but now he has become the tallest. My parents become fatter because they don't have much time to have exercises, but they still healthy!!! I'm so happy to be in this family, I love all of them and I think that my dad always be my hero.
