US27997 Write for Practical Everyday Purposes - (EL - Level 1) - Invitation


Flip through this resource here.

This resource guides students through Unit Standard 27997 Write simple texts for practical everyday purposes – version 3.  Completing this will provide students with ONE of two texts required for the completion of this standard.  (A task for a second text, requiring students to write a thank you email, is available here.)


For this task, students write an invitation.  They learn about the parts, structure and language of an invitation and are then carefully guided through the planning of their own invitation.  Students can choose their own ‘event’ or teachers might like to choose one for them.


Students are provided with:

  • A table of contents, upon which you can write dates to show them where they must be by a certain stage.
  • Three examples of invitations.
  • Unpacked achievement criteria / checklists
  • Help with what to include and structure.
  • Information about language features.
  • Planning pages
  • Templates for drafting and completing their writing.


This product includes:

  • The student booklet, within which is a cover page for your marking convenience.


This resource comes in Microsoft PowerPoint (resized as A4 pages). This means you can:

  • Edit / Tweak it to suit your / your students' needs.
  • Upload to Google if you prefer ‘Slides’ over PowerPoint.
  • Share with students digitally so that they can work on them online. (Note that for EL standards, students must work in hard copy because, other than dictionaries, they must not use any digital devices.)
  • Print as hard copy work booklets.
