Writers Workshop: "How to" books

We have been working on a new type of writing in our Writers Workshop, and after many weeks and much growth as writers, we finally published new books! This unit focused on writing informational books that teach the reader how to do something, so we called them "How to" books. Throughout the unit, we learned lots of strategies that writers use, such as editing, providing an exciting ending, and studying mentor texts to see what other authors. Here are the results of all our hard work!
