Wt/E3.3

Sequence chronological writing
(a) Understand that some writing is sequenced by order of events in time
(b) Understand that certain linking words are useful to join sentences and paragraphs in chronological writing, e.g. first, then, later, while, before, after

This is a simple activity to get learners used to the concept of writing instructive text. It can be used as an introduction to the topic of ‘Purpose of Text’ and is easily adaptable to different contextualised areas e.g. instructions on how to: hang a door; insert hair rollers; change a tyre; make a bouquet etc.

The activity allows for ease of differentiation between levels, based on your assessment of the output, and works well as a main activity for Entry Level learners, or a fun warm-up for Level 1/2 learners.
