Yujin: You have done too much work here--all you needed to do was Sentence 1--then the next student takes your sentence "She quickly gave her young son a hug before he went to school" and keeps that change and makes the second change indicated.
Your other sentences: 2 and 3 are good (be careful of typos): #4--not a good verb to use here;#5--good; #7--good, but I don't know why you added "always"; #8--good.

STUDENT 2: Please start from Sentence 2 and make the appropriate change to that sentence.

1Michelle quickly gave her young son a hug before he went to school.

Nancy: Good, but you missed out the adverb in that sentence;-)
Satvinder: That's a good sentence, but you were supposed to make change #3 (indirect object noun) to Nancy's sentence.

I was confused when I read your comment. So I went to the Write Site ...

From the write site:

Direct Object: The noun affected by the action of the verb. It usually places after the verb: The boy hit the ball.

Did you mean adjective? So I should have written

She quickly gave her handsome husband a hug before he went to school.

3. Change Object Noun

Rachida quickly gave her young girl a hug before she went to school.

Nancy: The direct object usually places after the noun--it does not necessarily place directly after the noun. If a noun is qualified by an adjective, then the adjective usually places before the noun. But you're right--that should have read 'adjective'. ;-) But you didn't need to change the adjective--you just needed to keep it in the sentence.
Dave: OK--you're still on the direct object. By the way, who does "she" refer to?
