HOW TO Writing Projects for Fall

Fall is filled with wonderful opportunities to engage students in writing "how to" stories.
This packet uses the themes:
How to Rake Leaves
How to Pick An Apple
How to Carve a Jack-o-Lantern
How to Pick the Perfect Pumpkin
There are a number of differentiated graphic organizers to encourage appropriate sequencing and writing a meaningful paragraph.
I have included here the literature I love to read before beginning a "how to" writing lesson.
