My Favourite Lesson of the Week.
This had to be our instructional writing workshop, without a doubt. Everyday, I laughed along with my 3rd graders as they learned about being specific when writing “How To” instructions. The use of transition words was the emphasis from an academic standpoint, with the culmination in a well-developed paragraph. But, how does a teacher not crack up with laughter, as she watches an 8 year old boy attempting to put on a pair of tights over his trousers?! Or witnessing the eye-opening realisation that our instructions are missing several key details when our victim…..I mean, PARTNER, gets a mouthful of toothpaste as they are directed how to brush their teeth…..and all around, kids are falling over in fits of laughter?!!
I am on an obsessive hunt for all kinds of useful,user friendly tools for teachers.
