How To Writing with How to Train a Train!

This week I am talking about How to Train a Train by Jason Carter Eaton.

This is a great book for introducing How To Writing and personification.

Of course, if you want a train of your own, you will need to catch one.
There are several methods of catching your train so you will have to figure out what works for you.
There are tons of tips for being a good train owner such as “Few trains can resist a good read-aloud.” or “A warm bath can help can help calm a nervous train”.
My kiddos LOVED this book.  It is such a fun book to have in your classroom library!
I have made a fun little How To Writing freebie graphic organizer to go with it.
