Paper Plate Fish

This term our writing focus has been instructions. We have learned what we need to include when we write instructions and have been preparing to write about making a paper plate fish.

When writing instructions, we need:

  • Bossy verbs
  • Time words
  • Chronological order
  • Commas for a list

Drawing a text map and learning actions has really helped us to learn what we need to write and remember all of these important things.

Take a look at some of us in action!

Afterwards we were allowed to make and decorate our own paper plate fish by following the instructions on the text map.
