Complete your activity and write your Instructions
Watch my Loom Video showing my instructions for planting a seed:
ALERT #1: Can you spot my blooper related to the months? Clue - it's quite early on in the video!
ALERT #2: I realised afterwards that I didn't add any adverbs ending in _ly. See if you can beat me!
Carry out your chosen task (make a pizza/cake, plant a seed, building a model, making a sandwich… it’s up to you!) You might like to take photos of each step to help you with your writing.
Start your instruction writing. Remember to give your Instructions a title like ‘How to make ________’.
Here are the features to include:
- Use 'How to....' in the title.
- Lists (eg. materials, ingredients, equipment)
- Numbers/bullet points to show order
- Imperative Verbs
- Sentence starters/time connectives (First, Next, Then...)
- Short, clear sentences
