My Selfie Summer, Recount Writing in 5th and 6th

Hi everyone!

 

I am sure teachers up and down the country will be asking children all about their summer holidays this day next week! So here is a little post on recount writing.

Recount writing is one of my favourite writing genres. There is no way I could go through all the steps in teaching a recount in one blog post, the PDST website has everything you need on that front. I will however give a brief overview of points to go over if you are doing a recount in the first week of school.

I have a new product on my website called 'My Selfie Summer'. It is a series of writing frames based on an iphone for 5th and 6th to use as a template for writing their summer recount. The first 100 downloads are free and once they are downloaded the price will be 1.50!
