1-2 B have had great fun this week in literacy making sandwiches! The literacy focus has been on procedural texts, writing instructions on how to make something. This hands-on activity game them something yummy to write about. After listing the ingredients and utensils needed the class then wrote down each instruction step by step as a joint construction writing task with Miss Toop. At the end of the instructions they wrote 'Enjoy!' Students had a choice of either peanut butter or vegemite. When they had finished they could not wait to munch into their sandwiches. They all felt it was a fantastic way of learning how to write a procedure by actually doing the task first. Bon appetit 1-2B!
