Following Instructions

Today in writing we have been learning about procedural writing or writing to instruct. This type of writing includes things like recipes, instructions, rules of a game and some science experiments.

Miss Stone's writing groups read some different examples of procedural texts and then talked about the language features they contained. Then they had to follow some instructions to build different electrical circuits.

Each group got a different kit with different instructions to follow. Some groups found that there instructions were very clear, while others had some that were quite complicated.  All of the students found the pictures very helpful.

Now the students have some experience with  procedural writing, they will begin to write their own texts.
