Five sentence procedures are a powerful way to teach students how to construct a procedural text.

Most students need a scaffold in-between brainstorming ideas to help them map out their text. Writing five sentences to outline each step of the procedure, helps your students to successfully complete their texts. They are perfect for helping students to write every part of the procedure, and to help with pacing for set time durations in preparation for testing.

Use on your whiteboard as-is, or edit to suit your class/purpose.

When students can compelte this process, they are ready to use these sentences as topic sentences for a more developed procedure.
