First Steps Resource; Recount Writing
An excellent resource to use with the First Steps approach to writing. The resources here use and explain the key terms very effectively. The differentiated levels for the texts are also very useful for ensuring that all children are able to access the features of this writing genre. The checklists are very useful for the kids as well!
Recount Writing Pack
Great pack but would be really useful to have an editable version(Word) of the recount examples so that I could do a shared edit with the children on the interactive whiteboard. Also I could then create a version with deliberate mistakes(based on AFL of my class).
Wonderful resource for First Steps
I love this resource,we use First Steps writing program in our school and I found this so helpful in using age appropriate examples of recount writing.Its all there ,texts to model with , worksheets and tasks to use with groups or individuals if you prefer in a simple structured way.I could have made some of these but it would have taken far too much time.These are like something made my a class teacher .V functional
good for display and examples of recounts
This collection is ideal for display. For activities there are some examples of recounts, check lists and writing frames. There are also activity cards that give a stimulus, although these lack a visual. Another resource answers the question words to give note form of a recount.
I loved this pack. We used them as part of a display which children could refer to during their writing. They were colourful, well laid out and very child appropriate. The children loved the writing checklists!
Another fantastic resource. Made use of almost everything in this pack! The examples of writing are great to use in whole class teaching settings and provide students with an idea of what is expected of their writing. Also the writing checklists are great to remind everyone what needs to be included in different genres. Thanks!
Recount Writing Pack
This is an excellent resource, well laid out, easy to use, teacher and child friendly. The different examples of recount writing are colourful, interesting and appropriate. The Recount Writing Pack is a must have in my classroom, especially the question word grid, which we use not only in the context of Recount but also as a template/worksheet which is invaluable when children compose their own questions on text read, applied in a cross-curricular manner.More packs please!
Recount Writing Record
I am a preservice teacher who used the recount writing resources while on Prac in a year 1 class, the teacher was so impressed with them I gave them to her, she signed up and so did several other teachers at the school. They said they made the learning concepts clear and easy to follow while connecting with the students by the use of the engaging character. I will continue to use the amazing resources from this site when in the work force as I can trust they are accurate and professional.
Thank you Teaching Packs
I have used this resource several times and find it outstanding. I really enjoy the teaching packs and can't wait for the new ones to come out.
Super resources. I used for P345 composite class. The writing planner was well set out. excellent material for display
