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.
