Option 2: Instructions


In the early years there is a literacy program called Talk4Writing where children learn a story/instructions using picture prompts and tell the story aloud.

I picture that when teaching an instruction text such as a recipe the teacher could explore with the children what would happen if they cut up the story poster and rearranged the steps. For example if telling the instruction for making fairy bread ‘What would happen if we put the sprinkles in before the butter?’ or ‘What would happen if we spread the butter before getting out the slice of bread?’.

You could give the children the cut up picture story board and have them order the instructions to be correct in pairs/on their own.
