I put a few Toy Story characters with speech bubbles in a themed writing box and they were very popular, so I made more for lots of other characters that are popular with the children in my class and left in writing area.
A variety of Literacy Tasks

Three differentiated worksheets, suitable for Year 1 & 2 pupils.
1 - Storyboard sheet with pictures and lines underneath for able writers to write each part of the story.
2 - Storyboard sheet with pictures and parts of the story with gaps for pupils to fill in.
3 - Complete storyboard in the wrong order for less able pupils to cut out and sequence.
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.
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.
