Recount writing - using time connectives

Submitted by KERI (26-01-2013)

Try teaching the idea of writing an introduction about just one activity on the weekend, not the whole weekend.

Following this introduction, teach children about time connectives which will allow the student to clarify their writing and their meaning within each new sentence.

This is great for kinders who are at the beginning end of writing, but also can be used in any grade thereafter.

eg

Yesterday I went to the park.
First I packed my lunch in my bag.
Then I got in the car with my dad.
Next we arrived at the park. It was crowded.
Then I ran to the swings.
Finally it was time to go home.
After I got home I was really tired, but I had so much fun.

This can also be used for any type of procedural recount as well.

  • I extend the YES/ NO game by printing the DOLCH words (small print) ,cutting up the lists and laminating them & including them in the YES /NO packet. Use a blank card to put ?'s about these words e.g. how many times can you find these words in Chapter 2? Chn. list the results on a whiteboard.

  • The Sea words are great to add to the Lighthouse series books when you are doing these books with the children. you could extend the theme to the sea and then to pirates and far away lands and maybe even first contact explorers of Australia.
