Now that we know what an instructional piece of writing is used for. We need to make sure we have a list of words that we can use in our own work. Take a peek at the list of words from this website and write down any words that you think you could use in your instructional writing.

UPDATE: We created our own Bank of Words that we think are really impressive and will make our work amazing! Have a look at our PREPOSITIONS, VERBS, ADVERBS and ADJECTIVES.

This is starting to really take shape now. I think we need to have a look at examples of some really good ones! You can find them below. What do you notice about them all? What do you think makes them really good?
