“How to Make Fairy Bread” Procedural Writing Task

Are you looking for a writing scaffold to support your students in learning the structural elements of procedural writing? If so, this flipbook could be exactly what you are looking for!

This flipbook has been created by our expert teacher team to guide your students in writing a procedural text to inform others how to make fairly bread. Each page contains a particular structural feature on procedural texts for the students to fill in. These are:

  • Page 1 – Ingredients
  • Page 2 – Step 1: Butter
  • Page 3 – Step 2: 100s and 1000s
  • Page 4 – Step 3: Cut
  • Page 5 – Step 4: Serve

The keywords featured on each page (butter, 100s and 1000s, cut, serve) can be used to scaffold to support students in writing the steps of the “How to Make Fairy Bread” procedure. Space is also provided for the students to draw a visual representation of each step.

Through completing this activity, students will not only learn the key structural elements of a procedural text, but will also learn how to make a tasty snack!

Test Out This “How to Make Fairy Bread” Procedure

One inevitability related to using this resource is that once your students write a procedure for making fairy bread, they will undoubtedly want to test their instructions by making fairy bread themselves!

The good news for teachers is that fairy bread is very easy to make and requires minimal equipment (bread, butter, sprinkles, a knife and some plates). Students could work in pairs to test each other’s instructions and then eat the fruits of their efforts for morning tea.

If you’re not quite sure that sprinkles and a class of young students make a good mix, you could always send your students’ flipbooks home to have them test out their instructions in the comfort of their own kitchens.
