I think that in writing such a paragraph, the instructor is probably looking for the emergence of a personalized voice in the writing.  I would ask the child to compose about fifteen sentences or thoughts about their trip to Disneyland, all of them beginning with the personalized pronoun.  Tell the child to follow each "I" with a verb or some type of action that forces their memory to be present.  For example, "I remember hugging Mickey Mouse" or "I remember that it was hot."  If the child can start to compose these "I" statements connected to memory, the narrative paragraph starts to develop.  Looking at the fifteen created, the child can then pick their best 10 and rewrite them as a cohesive paragraph.

The most important part of this kind of composition is the the thing of beauty you saw. It could be anything like a lower, a garden, a puppy, a dance performance, or anything else that that you saw and can describe clearly in about five to eight sentences. The next important thing will be some comment on the lasting impression that this thing of beauty. It could be a simple sentence like "I will never forget the ...". Least important, but still necessary part is how and when you came across this thing of beauty. One mist think through these three parts of the composition before writing. Once this is done. The composition can be written in following format.

  1. Describe in one or maximum two sentences when and how you saw this beautiful thing. It could be something like "Last Tuesday when i was walking back from my school", or last Sunday I went to see a circus .....".
  2. Then introduce the thing of beauty. One can say something like " ... I saw a beautiful .....".
  3. Describe in 6 to 7 sentences the beauty of what you saw.
  4. Conclude the composition with a remark about the lasting effect of the thing of beauty. This can be something very simple like "I will never forget ..." or anything else that is appeals to you.

There are a plethora of things that an 8 year old could find beautiful: Herself, mountains, flowers, dresses, etc. 

Ask her how she feels when she sees something beautiful. Ask her what makes it seem beautiful to her. Ask her to describe this object in detail. These three things can easily take up 10 sentences.
