My 1st graders learn to write how-to stories as part of our writers' workshop. In order to write like an author, I first immerse my students in well-written how-to books on a variety of topics. Students are inspired and motivated by these wonderful books. They also start to make great observations of techniques authors use as they teach the reader how to do something new. Students notice transition words and steps written in order, materials and ingredients lists, how the illustrations and photos match the words and enhance the writing, and how authors employ helpful hints to assist the reader as they attempt something for the very first time. My students also learn about tide pools, opinion writing, personal narratives, and the difference between wants and needs. The twinkle lights will provide a warm, inviting, and cozy reading environment for the children.
