Finally, we read lots of how-to books from the library, including this one, How to Make Slime.
So of course we had to follow the directions in the book and try it out! The kids were so excited for "Slime Day." Our recipe can be found here if you'd like to try it at home. It's a bit messy, but worth it!
After that slimy adventure, we began writing our own how-to books using the ideas we had brainstormed.
They turned out wonderfully! Here are a few of my favorite ones:
|"How to Write My Name"|
|"How to Throw a Football"|
|"How to Drive a Skidloader"|
|"How to Peel the Tail off the Shrimp"|
|"How to Wash the Dishes"|
|"How to Dance with a Dog" :)|
Our next Writer's Workshop unit is on non-fiction writing (also known as informational writing). I can't wait to see how their books turn out!
