It's time for a break from writing narratives and on to procedural writing. How To writing to be exact!
We read how to books and made charts on what they had in common. We also tried to focus on the small ideas of what we were good at and not the big ideas, like how to hit a baseball and not how to play the game of baseball.
It was a chance for students to decide what they were experts at and could explain to other students how to do.
After making lists of what we were good at, we practiced putting in order how to make a peanut butter sandwich. I wanted them to get a feel for what it would sound like if it were out of order.
This little girl loves make-up, dresses, and all things girly! So obviously she decided she was an expert at putting on eye shadow and lip balm.
This little boy likes football and decided to teach how to kick one. I like how he drew movement lines when he kicked the football!
We had so much fun learning about How To writing! If your students are ready for a break from other writings and want to show what they are an expert at, let them do some How To writing!
