    Estimated Time- 25 minutes

    Explanation of Activity/Assignment- Students will write a Lead, the materials for How to Brush Your Teeth, and the first 2 steps with details. Use graphic organizer page 9 & 10, “How To” Writing. (If not enough room to write lead and materials- use back of the page.) Students introduce their writing with an interesting hook and the materials they need. Students write what they do “First” with details (use adjectives, sound words, 5 senses) and “Next” for the second step.

    Quick things to know- Use your 5 senses in your writing. Tell how it looks, smells, tastes, sounds, and feels when brushing your teeth.

    Words: toothpaste, toothbrush, bristles, foamy, rinse, water, swish, squirt, minty, color words …

    Leads can start with a question, sound words, or a statement.

    Ex: Shhh, shhh goes the water.  Squirt goes the toothpaste. Want the whitest, most sparkling clean teeth ever? …

    Ex: Brushing your teeth is an important job we all need to do. To have the freshest and cleanest teeth your dentist would be proud of, just follow my directions of how to brush your teeth.

    Tasks- Write a Lead for “How to Brush Your Teeth” on page 9.  Include materials you need.

    On page 9 write your First step with details. On page 10 write your Second step with details.
