My WRITING DIRECTIONS materials include Graphic Organizers for games, recipes, projects, as well as writing directions to a place.
Students use the organizers to work step-by-step, organizing
information needed to explain directions to others.
I have included some samples of how to use them and a page of transitional words, sequence words and vivid words.
After completing the Graphic Organizer, students should write a rough draft of their directions. Then, using the included page of words (transitional, sequence and vivid) revise their writing before making a final copy.
Extenion: This is an activity my students loved! When writing
directions to a place, Tell each student select some place in the school ( cafeteria, office, etc.) and write directions telling how to get there from your room. Then, exchange the directions with another student to follow without knowing where the directions would take them. (I always sent students in pairs and notified the office and other teachers, just so adults knew what was going on and could keep an eye on them.)
Enjoy! And please give me feedback.
