Literature to enhance informative writing:
The Totally Terrific Valentine Party Book by Judith Bauer Stamper 

From Suzy Red: One year, five days before Valentine's Day, I divided my class into 5 groups, each with a copy of The Totally Terrific Valentine Party Book. They carefully followed the book's directions, page by page to write invitations, decorate the room, write poems, prepare games, and make cupcakes for a Valentine Party. They were each given play money to purchase the ingredients for the cupcakes from our store and had to accurately make change. From the dozen eggs in our "store," they had to figure out how much two eggs cost (ah-ha! division). They learned to wash their hands and keep their work space clean. They had to measure the ingredients and learn how to break eggs. It is ALL we did that week and they learned more and remembered more than any other week of the year! (No one took credit for the cricket that was baked into one cupcake.) As a follow-up, each group researched, wrote, edited, illustrated and printed a NEW how-to book modeled from The Totally Terrific Valentine Party Book about another holiday to put in our library. This was authentic learning!
