Procedural Writing

Last week we began to write instructions about something we know how to make well.  This week we are writing recipes.

How to make a Paper Snowflake

Paper plate
1.  Draw carefully around the paper plate onto the paper.

2. Cut out the circle shape you have made. 

3.  Fold the circle shape in half .

4.  Fold it into quarters, so it looks like this triangle.

5.  Cut out small shapes along each edge. 

6.  Unfold your paper when you think you have finished.
