How to Eat a Candy Cane



 After a few weeks off, getting back into the swing of school takes a little time. However, when there is a sweet treat involved, it always spices up the school day and makes for an especially fun Writer's Workshop. Today, the children watched as a big box of cherry candy canes was opened. We talked through each step: opening the box, snipping off the end of the wrapping, carefully peeling back the plastic and then enjoying eating it. They listed the items needed for this activity on the bottom of the sheet and included pictures and captions.  When they were finished writing, they followed their own directions and enjoyed eating their candy cane.  What a great way to get back into writing!!
