Early Stage 1 - Activity 2

informative text - procedure

Description of activity

Students write or illustrate an informative text using a scaffold provided by the teacher.


Students have been learning about how ideas are conveyed through pictures and words. They have listened to spoken texts and read informative texts that explain the steps to carry out a task. Students have jointly constructed informative texts that presented a series of steps. They were then asked to compose a short piece of writing accompanied by pictures to explain a simple process.
