During my total teach I completed a writing project with the students in which they all wrote their own fractured fairy tales. During my last week on campus I decided I wanted to do one last fun writing project. Earlier in the week my mentor teachers daughter had a small surgery and I had the class write her get well soon cards. We talked about using different types of writing for different things, so I thought it would be great to do a writing project where students learned how to use writing in a new way to write a recipe.
Students were told to come up with their own recipe and after watching a video and having a discussion about how we write recipes, the students wrote out their ingredients, equipment, and steps for the recipe. We put them all together and created a class cookbook. I was so impressed with their work that I decided to create a bulletin board in the main hallway of Gullett showcasing their work!
