How to...

In Writer's Workshop, 1st graders have been focusing on informational writing.  Each student chose a topic they were an expert on to create a "How To..." book.  Once students decided on a topic they began with a rough draft, making sure to use rich transition words.  Next, students used green pens to revise and edit their work.  After that, 1st graders used scribble press on the iPads to create a how to book.
I was very impressed to look around the classroom during Writer's Workshop to see every single student, I repeat EVERYONE on task for the whole writing block. 1st graders were so into creating their books and repeatedly asked and begged to finish them.
