PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This differentiated writing project is a fun and meaningful way for students to develop procedural writing skills. In this project, students will create a cake recipe for a “contest” and use procedural writing to share the steps needed to create the cake.

This resource includes:
♥ Lesson plans
♥ Small group warm-up activity to engage students and review procedural writing skills
♥ Project assignment page (explaining project to students)
♥ Student planning and project pages (two choices given for both planning and projects)
♥ Grading rubrics
♥ Examples of completed project

You can finish this project in two to three class periods, depending on the time you have available. I have included a suggested lesson plan sequence for two days. Each student begins with a planning page. Completing the planning page will help students brainstorm a recipe as well as think through the steps needed to make a cake. Students can revise and edit using this planning page.

The final project choices are differentiated. The first option has room for the recipe, materials, and procedural writing all on one page. For the second option, students write the recipe and tools needed on a full size sheet of paper. The procedural writing can be completed on the lined paper provided or typed on the computer. This allows for more room depending on the amount of information you want students to include.

You can choose to grade the planning page and project page as one grade together, or only grade the finished writing project (final project page). Grading rubrics are included for both choices!
