One of the Standards where I live asks us to teach children how to write expository stories. One of the topics they ask us to dive into is "How To" stories. I base this lesson using a Workshop style teaching. This packet includes all of the lessons needed to complete this standard. There are tips, lessons, and all of the pages I use when teaching. The students will go from researching "How To" books, to making a plan for their own "How To books, to actually writing and publishing their books. This gives them a sense of independece and a chance to teach everyone else in the class something new. After I have finished this unit in my class, I leave several blank "How To" pages in the writing center and 8 times out of 10 the children always choose to make yet another "How To" story. I hope you enjoy this product as much as we do!
