We are learning to recount events that happened in the past.

We know we can do this when we can:
·    Follow the Writing Process
·    Have a title
·    Write: an orientation telling when, who, what and where the event happened, a     sequence of events using tine connectives and a personal comment to conclude the recount
·    Use the past tense
·    Use a lot of different descriptive words to make our recount more interesting
·    Start my sentences in different ways

Charlotte said, "I learnt to do a recount about something that has happened. There are 4 parts in a recount - the title, orientation, sequence of events and a personal response. I learnt to use cool words that paint pictures in peoples head when they read my story.   I learnt to use similes and onomatopoeia  to make my story more interesting and ellipsis when something else is coming in the story. Next Step:  I will use more descriptive words."
