O-R-E-O...How do you eat yours?

Hello Everyone!
We began our "How To" writing unit today.  What better way to start than with a sweet treat? Oreos fit the bill.  Everyone eats an Oreo cookie a little differently. After giving my kids a chance to show how they eat an Oreo, we talked about how we can teach someone else how to eat one.  Why not write about it?  I introduced "How To" writing and went over some of the important transition words which make reading and understanding easier.  We will continue tomorrow with our planning and organizing sheet and then try to make a book.  Can't wait!
Crunch it!

Lick it!

Just take a bite!

Or scrape it!

Quick anchor with transition words

14 pages of planning pages and mini book pages.

Can't wait for the rest of the week!!
Hope you're having a great week!
