Short literacy lesson for elementary students that combines improvisation with expository writing.
“How-to” writing is a form of expository writing. It is sometimes difficult for the early writer to remember the many steps to take when doing a task. This can be a powerful concept to couple with pantomime or improvisation because the students usually know what to do but often don’t include the steps in the writing. This short lesson can easily be delivered to 1st through 5th grades.
It’s also an excellent English Language Learner activity!
