"How To" Books

After finishing our first writing unit on Small Moment narratives, first graders jumped right into learning about writing "How To" books.  They are learning that this is a whole different genre of writing, with a completely different purpose.  The class wrote a shared book together about How to Make a Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich.  Each step in the process was written out in order, and today the book was put to the test!  Ms Purvee followed the steps to see if, in fact, they would lead to the making of a pb&j sandwich.  It was a success!  We ended up with an edible pb&j sandwich, although we noted some missing details that will need to be added in before publication!
