Lesson plans and handouts for instructional writing. Students will have practice with various kinds of verbs and sequencing. May be more useful as a template for U.S. teachers since some of the lesson references are UK-specific.
This is a ten-lesson unit of work on reading and writing instructions based around the topic Romans.<br />
The ten lessons in this unit aim to give children the opportunity to understand the features of instructions as a genre. In the first week, children will engage with the text type by following instructions to make edible Roman roads out of biscuits, chocolates and custard! There is also a grammar focus on using prepositions and imperative verbs. In the second week, pupils will use drama to develop ideas and extend their vocabulary. They will then plan their own set of instructions about becoming Roman gladiator champions and they will then have the opportunity to draft, edit and present their final instructions.<br />
The literacy objectives covered in this unit are:<br />
- To give and follow verbal instructions<br />
- To use prepositions<br />
- To read and follow written instructions<br />
- To identify how language, structure and presentation contribute to meaning<br />
- To use a range of imperative verbs<br />
- To prepare a group performance<br />
- To make a plan for my writing<br />
- To write my own instructions<br />
- To edit my writing<br />
- To make decisions about how to present my writing<br />

A four-week long literacy unit, complete with a few worksheets. The resources we used were photocopies from various books. The Scholastic 'Hot Topics' Pirates book proved to be very useful. Pupils really enjoyed creating their pirate instruction manuals. The topic ensured that they were very engaged, especially the boys.
