Writing Instructions

Write a set of instructions for how to make your carnival costume and/or your headdress.

Remember to include the following:

  • Title
  • Introduction (to persuade the reader to make it)
  • List of materials
  • Bullet points or numbers
  • Imperative verbs (‘bossy’ verbs e.g cut, stick, fold)
  • Time connectives (e.g. first, then, next)
  • Modal verbs (e.g. you could add extra card; you should allow extra time for this to dry; you may want to add extra feathers)
  • Photos or diagrams to show step-by-step progress

– Final paragraph explaining what to do once you have made your costume! (e.g. Now, go to a carnival and have fun!)

Remember to keep practicing your times tables and read your book with your adults!
