Explanation texts unit plan and resources
*Update* Sorry, someone deleted everything from Dropbox. The videos are back on now!
Explanation texts unit... see 'Explanation texts unit plan&' first.
Started with Alien Research Centre (hook lesson), then did own Talk for Writing explanation (how does a dishwasher work?); moved on to using Wallace and Gromit &';Cracking Contraptions' videos, chn writing own explanation based on the shared (dishwasher) text. Finally, introduced topic for independent writing, based on the book &'how to catch a star&';.
*Planning frame refers to blank one.*
