Writing Instructions - How to Clean Your Teeth

Writing Instructions - How to Clean Your Teeth

PowerPoint presentation which details a simple instruction writing model - 'How to Clean Your Teeth' with a clear and concise layout. Each slide is colourful and engaging and allows a teacher to explain the instruction genre. Also included are sequencing, cut and stick flashcards. Children may assemble the instructions as a paired activity cutting and pasting sequentially onto sugar paper. This task is ideal for reinforcement and will support less secure learners in an active way. I have also included a set of cut and stick labels, phrases and instructions for an individual independent task. I have provided an assessment pro forma- cover plus writing assessment form. This can be used and easily adapted for other simple instruction models- e.g. How to Make a Sandwich These resources promote an active approach to writing instructions. They complement other resources within my shop - 'Writing Instructions- Introducing the Genre in an Active Manner' and Writing Instructions - 'How to Build a Snowman' which has additional literacy tasks included. I have included several slides within the preview to allow teachers to peruse the resource more comprehensively. Hope your earners enjoy the lesson and tasks. Many thanks for free use clip art provided by http://www.clipartlord.com
