The order for these sentences is very specific. you must always do the following:
Time (if you have one: YESTERDAY, 2-MINUTE BEFORE, NOVEMBER, VALENTINE’S DAY, TIME-4 AFTERNOON)
Comma (if you had a time)
Topic (MY DOG, YOUR HOUSE, P-E-T-E-R, SCIENCE CLASS) (underlined)
Comment (BROWN, COOL, ME LOST, MY FAVORITE, AWESOME)
Sometimes your time can be the topic if the focus of your sentence is on the time or time period.
Sometimes your time can be the comment if you are using the time as your comment.
During the Topic:

Holds the last sign of the topic
Pause slightly between the topic and the comment

Notice that the ASL gloss is all capitalized (to represent signs), has punctuation (a period) at the end, has dashes between the letters that are fingerspelled, and has a dash between the two words used in English to represent one sign in ASL.
The English is written with only the first letter capitalized and there is punctuation (a period) at the end.
There is a # sign before a sign to represent that the sign is lexicalized (spelling all or most of the letters of the word in order to make a sign).
