Identify and use instructional vocabulary


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi Ewar1212

Children usually really love instructions and the opportunity to do a bit of role reversal. Simon Says is a great starter or Georges Gym from letters and sounds. You can then deconstruct the instructions that they have been given. You could create a fictional character that is going to visit- my class are currently very excited about a monster that has been leaving notes and making a mess in our learning environment- I used him as a PSED device to write and revisit rules- but with a different character they could have to give them instructions- going over bossy verbs if they are ready! - I teach verbs with actions- doing/happening/being so that they have the auditory and the action to link together. We then act out verbs and do a sort of charades with them.

Activities can easily be differentiated- Use roamer devices such as the bee bots to give a practical application - i.e. can they make it go through the tunnel, to the book, near the chair ( create mazes and working in pairs) One child giving the instruction etc. This can be replicated in the outside area- challenge them to try and use instructional language to build a den, a camper van, a bridge.

Not sure that this is helpful! :1b

Instructions are great and can be practical in so many ways BUT has your LO been given to you as I think it might be a little too complicated for one lesson? Can you simplify or break it down into more easily obtained steps for your lesson?
