This week we’ve been focusing on “how-to” and “informational” writing. We started Monday by telling someone how to play a game. I chose War. After writing it all down, my kids were amazed!
Tuesday we discussed how to make a certain food or drink (like chocolate milk…nothing crazy!) I chose my favorite home recipe “Spicy Sausage Pepper Stew!” The kids were frantically copying down the recipe, begging me to bring some in. I told it’s just a tad too hot for their little tummies!
Wednesday we worked on informational stories about individuals. I reminded them about our historical figure books that tell so many interesting facts about individuals. Then I modeled a story about my husband.
There was such a cute moment afterward…the kids started interviewing each other and filling in their webs with facts about their classmates! Oh, the joy of that moment cannot be expressed! They were SO pumped!
I hope writing is going well in your classroom and with your students! What is your focus this week during writing?!
