How-To Writing


I am getting ready to start HOW To Stories. 
I have decided this year, to use pieces of the Lucy Calkin {new book} and Tony Stead/Linda Hoyt books on Procedural writing.
MENTOR TEXTS FOR HOW-TO'S

Before Starting this new writing  Unit: 
We read a few HOW TO STORIES
On Demand Writing Assignment:
{Pre-Assessment} 
Have students write a HOW TO Story.

KICKING OFF HOW-TO WRITING
Shared Writing: Make a Class How-To Procedural Poster


PROCEDURAL POSTERS
11X18
I like that Tony and Linda have students create procedural posters all on the same topic. You can click the Voice Thread below to see some samples from last year. This year, I decided to create a template for my students. I found that many kindergarteners were getting confused for placement of print and sequencing.
