The writers in room 17 have been working extremely hard on How-To books. They are fine tuning their genre skills that they began in Kindergarten. They have been adding more specific action words to their steps. Today they worked on adding catchy introductions. I was so proud of them for their hard work. We are also practicing using commas appropriately to separate items in a list. This is happening int he beginning of their books while listing the ingredients or tools needed to complete their How-Tos. Next, students will work on writing endings that wrap up their teaching.
