Do you enjoy making s'mores around the campfire? Do you have a special way that you like to make yours? How would you explain your special technique to other hungry campers?

Many times, step-by-step explanations are needed.

For example, to make the s'mores shown in this lesson, there are specific steps that are followed to make the yummy treats. Sometimes a favorite toy has directions for assembling before you can play with it! There are steps for:

  • how to make something.
  • how to get someplace.
  • how to do something.
  • how something works.

Writing directions does not have to be boring; just watch and listen to How I Became a Pirate by Melinda Long, from Mr. Paulson Reads (below). The author writes about how Jeremy Jacobs becomes a pirate in a fun and colorful way. Can you list the steps Jeremy Jacob followed to become a pirate?


Now, Matey, sail on to the Got It? section to write some instructions of your own!
