First, this resource comes with some colored pictures featuring the steps for making pancakes. You can print, (laminate), and cut them out or show the pictures digitally. This will facilitate a discussion of the steps required when making pancakes.
This resource also includes a planning page with 5 boxes, so that your students can write down (or draw pictures) of their ideas. This is a great opportunity for students to draft their writing (and you can point out any sequencing issues).
Next up, this resource features a worksheet (in two versions, dotted and plain lines). This worksheet allows your students to formulate their ideas into proper sentences that match the pictures. The dotted line version has 3 steps and the plain lines version has 4 steps. You can use this worksheet as a draft and fix up any student spelling or grammar errors.
Next, this resource has a writing craft for students to complete as their final writing piece (in two versions, dotted and plain lines). There is a full-sized page for student writing. Students color in a pancake, cut it out, and glue it on top of their writing. This makes a cute bulletin board!
If your students aren’t capable of writing a full page, this flip book is a great alternative craft idea. You can print as many pages as you like (there are two versions, dotted and plain lines). For example, students can write 1, 2, 3, or 4 pages worth of writing and glue them on top of each other. Students color in a pancake, cut it out, and glue it as the cover to their pancake flip book.
How can you get this freebie?
I hope you enjoy these free writing worksheets and crafts!
