Wish List Book: How to Clean Your Room

Helping students understand the need to include details in their writing can be tricky.  I have always found it easiest to do with "How To" writing.  C'mon - you all know you have done the peanut butter sandwich lesson at least once - much to the delight of students!!

In teaching writing, I have some favorite "How To" books - How to Lose All Your Friends among them.  But I am dying to get my hands on this one:

Not only will it bring back fond memories of cleaning your room as a child (each thing you picked up had a memory and it was so easy to get lost in the task and never quite finish!) but this book includes pop ups and spinners and fun things to engage the reader!!

Thanks to A Year of Reading for the link!
