We completed this as a shared writing activity. I left blanks for the students to review sight words. The students wrote on individual marker boards and had a chance to fill in the missing words.
We have connected our writing to lots of my favorite winter literature! I even have a snowman that glows in the dark. I turn it on when we read "Snowmen at Night."
Here is a sample of some of our "expository" writing. We are experts who know "how to" give instructions for others to follow!
how to make a sandwich
how to have a snowball fight
how to make a snow angel
how to make hot cocoa
We don't need this one often in Texas, but today was one of those days...how to stay warm on a freezing cold day!
