We’ve been looking at the structure of a Recount using the PM Exemplar Big Book, and it’s really helping my 5&6 year olds develop their ideas and sequence events. When you look at these samples, some have written a title, made a good attempt at sequencing and added a personal comment at the end. I’m very pleased with their writing, and more importantly their love of writing. I’ve got to remember that these are young writers in their first year of formal education in Australia. This is independent writing.
