My students are really loving How to...writing.
It's my favorite type of writing to teach because the children are always interested and eager to teach others how to do something. Plus, you can cover so many different skills.
Sequential order, transition words, strong verbs, descriptive words. The list is endless.
Here is a bulletin board I put together,
using my second grade students'
"How to Wash Your Hands" writing.
(Please note that these writing sheets have been updated since these photos were taken!)
My first graders made How to...books.
Although my A Year of How To...Writing pack has 54 different How to...Writing activities, my first graders still managed to come up with a few more that I didn't think of. Here's one of them!

One more thing! Yesterday, I blogged about my Kindergarten Common Core Language Review Sheets. I forgot to include a picture I had taken of one of my students using one of the activities.
This is one of the CVC activity sheets. This student is in one of my RTI groups. She is practicing how to read and write CVC words. I have the pages in sheet protectors to save paper. After she finished writing her answers on the recording sheet and checking them, using the included answer key, she erased her recording sheet and completed another activity. I love how we aren't wasting paper. Please note that I took this picture a few weeks ago, and I have since updated the title on the recording sheet. Each sheet now says Language Review and is labeled with the activity number. If you want to check out this pack, please click here.
