We wrote a lot of interesting how to books. I learned how to mow the lawn, brush my teeth, feed the cat and numerous other things. We celebrated the end of the how-to unit with traffic light sandwiches. Ask your child how to make one!
We are currently writing teaching books, also known as informational texts.
