We are finishing up our Narrative writing and finally moving into something different. After Winter Break, we will be teach a style of information writing. We will be writing How-To books. When we write how-to books we will decide on a topic to tell in a step by step way. We will describe how to do something over 4 or more detailed steps. We will be writing how-to books until the end of February!
At home: you can talk with your child when doing things, telling the steps in a step-by-step way (first, second, third, fourth, OR first, next, and then, last). When doing things involving steps, point them out and make a point to discuss with your child that this is something they could write about. Some examples: getting ready for bed, getting ready for school, cooking dinner.
