We have entered into a new genre of writing called Functional Writing. Students are learning how to give directions and create pieces of writing that tell "how to". They use transition words (first, next, then, last) to keep their steps in the correct order and create detailed pictures with labels.
Today the students learned how to make chocolate milk by watching each of the steps expertly demonstrated by their teacher (hahaha). Then the students had a chance to follow the steps and make their own chocolate milk. After they wrote about "How to Make Chocolate Milk", they were able to drink their delicious creations.
Who knew writing could be so yummy?!
