Procedural Texts and Writing

This week we are learning about procedural text. Today we read How to Teach a Slug to Read. This book is perfect for teaching little ones about procedural text. The steps in the book are numbered and it is formatted so that there is only one step per page.
After reading the book, we wrote our own procedural text for how to teach a kindergartner to read. Then students modeled each step so that we could add pictures to our directions. 

Here are a few other procedural texts we are going to use this week. If you have any great book suggestions or ideas for teaching procedural text I would love to hear them.

I'm not so impressed with your site on the right hand side that advertises 'League of Angels' Having the animated character's bust and tush is a bit distracting from your lovely blog.
Sorry...just thought you should know.
