How to eat an oreo cookie?

Anyone do this? Need steps on how they can write a descriptive paragraph without going off topic and making their papers unreadable and unenjoyable (well at least to me) Want to hang them outside of our classroom.

I always have good ideas but when the final written product is done I sometimes say AHHH why did I even try!!!!

Need step by step or day by day instructions. Should it just be first, second, next ???

Thanks in advance!

1. Have them use a graphic organizer to write each step down.

2.Next, you need to do a mini lesson on transition words. I have a booklet that gives the kids lists of transition words to use. This might help the kids to avoid the first, second, then rut.

3. Now it's your turn. They have been writing their pieces for at least 2 days. You "share " your piece with them. You can make errors for the kids to correct on the overhead or you can model revising transition words and sentence fluency.

4. Give them a session or two to complete their good copies. Then have a major share time( perhaps with Oreos and milk)
Have fun.

about how to blow a bubble with bubble gum. I think the key is to read some "how to" books first, then model how to write several how tos (give the dog a bath, do the laundry, whatever...). Then write a couple together and have the kids write with partners. Trade papers and see if partners can follow the steps.

After the kids wrote how to blow a bubble, the drew their faces on paper plates and I put a hole in each mouth and the kids blew up a pink balloon to feed through the paper plate (so it looked like they were blowing a bubble). The display was adorable and the writing sequence leading up to the final project meaningful.

I was looking for an expository writing idea when I ran across this post. I did a google search and found a more detailed lesson for the oreo idea. Here is the link if you're interested.
