During Writers Workshop, the students learn how to write different genres of writing. This Fall we learned how to write a Procedural piece of writing. We began by reading a book called Hair Heads. The students learned step by step how to grow and care for a Hair Head. They then grew, cared for and decorated their own Hair Heads in the classroom. The students then took what they learned about Hair Heads and the Procedural genre and wrote wonderful Procedural writing pieces. Here is a sample of the writing that each student wrote about their Hair Heads in a PowerPoint Presentation.
