Little Miss Teacher is a place where those of us in the classroom can share our ideas, resources and experiences. We can also have a good old moan and share some of those funny little things our children say!

Writing A Recount PowerPoint

I am sure we all ask our children to write recounts quite regularly. I discuss the features of recounts with my Y3 class and use them as success criteria. Features such as:

Writing in the first person
Mainly writing in the past tense
The need for an introduction
Chronologically ordering events
Using connectives and other time related vocabulary

As we write recounts fairly often, I have put all this information into a PowerPoint file so I can use it over and over again. The last page can also be printed out and used as a rubric with the children. My class love this activity.

You can download my PowerPoint here. Feedback welcome as always!

Hi Deb,

Warrington have produced the writing project which links in VAK with Literacy. Included in the packs are powerpoint presentations for each of the main styles of non-fiction writing. I'll see if I can get permission to put them up on the web - Don't hold your breath though.

Thanks Andrew.

It only took minutes to make, but if there is something already there, I can waste my time in other ways!!!

I love teaching writing to my students, I can give them topics about anything from what's happening to the society to something about giving pride to the school. And I'm amazed at how they write their papers, these special ed students really do think and feel the way we all do!
