Today we are going to write a recount.
A recount is a type of writing where you write about experiences that have happened to you.
Below is a recount written by a wee boy called Sam. In his recount he wrote about a time when a story teller came to visit his school.
Write a recount about something that you have done. It can be anything from going to a shop to going for a walk.
You can write this on a page at home or complete the 2do task on PurpleMash so that I can read it!
Here are some tips to help you make your recount writing excellent.
- Write your recount in the first person because it happened to you! Eg "I felt excited."
- Use the past tense because it has already happened. Eg "It was the biggest fish I had ever seen!"
- Recounts are written in the order in which they happened. This is called chronological order. Use adverbs such as: firstly, next, then and finally.
- Using descriptive words will make it seem like your reader is there with you. Eg "The fish was shiny and slippery." Focus on the most exciting parts.
High Frequency Words
This week we are going to learn some more HFW. I have attached 5 worksheets. One for each day of the week. I suggest you pick one word each day and focus on it for the day. Try to say the word as many times as you can throughout the day. You could even make a poster for each word to pin up at home. This will help you to remember what each word looks like.
Keep going over the HFW from your HFW book at home too! I have also attached a blank snakes and ladders chart. You can print it out and write one HFW in each square. Then your ready to play.
Play the game with someone at home. Each time you land on a square you have to say the HFW before you move on. If you get it wrong you have to go back 1 square. If you get it right you can stay on the square you are on.
If you don't have a printer you can try and play this game online https://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/hfwBingo/index.html
