Peanut Butter and Jelly 2006

Writing "Steps in a Process"

We wrote directions for how to make a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It was harder than it sounds.
Our partner made the sandwich according to our directions.
Our partner couldn't do anything that was not written in our "steps in a process".
Sometimes the directions were confusing.
Sometimes the directions were clear.
At least the ingredients were yummy even if our sandwiches were strange.
What are you doing to my sandwich? I have to eat that, you know.
We tried our best to do it right!
Sometimes the finished product looked a little unusual and a bit tricky to eat, too.
I have to do what?
You MUST be joking!
Are you listening carefully? I want to eat that, you know.
That looks good enough to eat. I hope!
I'm not an octopus.
This is crazy!
Don't mess up my sandwich. I'm eating that!
Can I eat it now?
This bread is very heavy!

You're crazy!
This is making me hungry.
I can't remember the steps!

What was the first step again?
These are heavy!
Can I put the food down?
Do you want me to tell you the steps?
Okay, first you get a plate.
This bread is squishy!
First you take out some bread.
Let me read you my poem!
Then you spread the jelly.
Voila! A peanut butter and jelly sandwich!
This was a very interesting writing project.
We all had fun and lots of laughs. Writing "steps in a process" isn't as easy as you think. Try it sometime...if you dare!
