Final Piece of Writing for Term 3- Preps / 5&6 Year Olds: Genre – Recount

My students participated in a walkathon last week. They were given a few ‘freebie’ words (walkathon, raise) to assist them with their recount. The structure of a recount is now embedded in many of my student’s writing. This is the ‘transfer of teaching’ that I often write about. Just because I teach something, doesn’t mean they’ve learnt it! Evidence of learning needs to be empirical. This independent writing is about a common experience. My students have applied the recount structure to a recount which is not a personal journal entry. Fantastic!

Cheers Nina
