We recently had our school’s community fundraiser event, so, what a great stimulus idea for writing!
All students went, so they all had a personal connection to the topic.
To ensure all students were able to write an entertaining recount, we collaboratively made a Kidspiration map about the rides and stalls that were there.
Including some images assists the visual learners and adding the feeling of ‘scary’ reminds all students to expand their ideas.
After we had our planning session, students went ahead to independently write their own recount.
I didn’t have any student saying that they didn’t know what to write!
Give it a try!
