One of the first writing projects we attempted was How to Make a Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich. Through a lot of modeling, modeling, modeling, we finally came up with these:
Student # 1 – an up-close picture of the sandwich
The peanut butter sandwiches were created using the template in the pack mentioned above with a small modification. The example in the template showed jelly on top of peanut butter on top of bread. The jelly had a smiley face on it. My students thought it would make more sense to have two slices of bread so we did that and I gave them a title template to put on their sandwich. We also used a brad to attach the sandwich pieces so you could still open the sandwich and see what was inside. Most of my students are finishing the first draft of their How to Carve a Pumpkin piece. If I get some volunteer help this week they will get a chance to make their pumpkins to go with their writing pieces.
