How to Make Lemonade

It's been all about "How To" writing in Writer's Workshop for the last month or so.  One of our very first activities was to make lemonade together so that we could all experience a procedure together and then explain it for an audience.  That experience was the inspiration for this book, written by a second grader, who envisioned little men with miniature sized machines making lemonade for a regular sized guy.

How to Make Lemonade

First you wash your hands.

Next you cut the lemons.

Then you squeeze the lemon.

Fourth put the lemon juice in the pitcher.

Then fill a little pitcher with water all the way to the top.

After that get some ice.

Then put the ice in the pitcher.

Then get one cup of sugar and measure

Then put the sugar in the pitcher.

The last part of the work is to stir all of those things together.

Last, drink it and enjoy.

Wow!  Anyone else think I have a future author/illustrator on my hands?
