Purpose of text - Club sandwich instructions
Submitted by Kereen Smith on 9 October 2013.
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.
The activity also encourages the learners to focus on planning their work, layout, writing in complete sentences and spelling, punctuation & grammar (SPAG).
