Our Year 2 class has been learning how to use procedure writing as a part of our daily writing tasks. Procedure writing is a really meaningful connection to our current Inquiry unit about sustainability, through inquiries into plants and plant life.
Our first attempt with procedure writing was how to make fairy bread.
We wrote a procedural text about how to make fairy bread – here are some photos of the class during the writing task. The best part was the next day when we tested our written procedure – we got to make Fairy Bread. This was a great treat as Fairy Bread is a sometimes food!
The second procedure writing activity was called Growing Beans.
Last week we planted 4 different types of beans to see how they grow, the parts of a seed, how seeds grow and what they need to grow. We’ll be working like Scientists to observe changes to our beans over time. We used the Explain Everything app to record how to grow beans.
Here are our Explain Everything movies that we shared via airplay onto the Interactive Whiteboard.
