How To Writing - Root Beer Floats

During the month of January, we do some exciting writing!  Our third graders work on How To Writing pieces (How to Build a Root Beer Float and How to Blow a Bubble).  We just finished our How to Build a Root Beer Float.  We first start out as a grade level and build a Root Beer Float together.  By the students giving directions, they quickly realize how specific they need to be and they need to give every detail!  From there, students draw the steps and then work on writing out the directions step by step.  This is a great time for us to work on transition words and talk about using a variety of catchy transitions instead of first, second, third, etc. Here are some pictures of the finished work!  They really enjoy this writing and it is very "eye-catching" and they enjoy seeing them out in the hallway!
