How To Writing

We ventured into "How To" writing this week.  We started with the wonderful book Snowballs by Lois Ehlert.

After our read-aloud, we talked about the steps in making a snowman and each created a "How to Build a Snowman" booklet.  Today, each child brainstormed what they feel like they are "an expert" in and then began planning their writing.

We had MANY children excited to share their expertise--we used the magnifier so everyone could see.  Our sharers today were focused on teaching people to draw lots of different kinds of things.
