Tuesday 5th October -Literacy

Holiday Recount

I am learning to write a series of sequential events and use consistent capital letters and full stops.

I know I can do it when I can use consistent capital letters and full stops in my recount.

Today is writing time!

Yesterday you listed all of the activities that you completed in the holidays, today you are going to write about them.

Independent Task

You are going to write a recount about what you did during your school holidays.

You can include a few things that you wrote on your list yesterday OR write about one of your favourite things that you did in lots of detail.

Make your writing more colourful by including interesting verbs and adjectives. Such as slide, run, walk, think, watch, walk, make, adventurous, brave, bored, helpful, friendly, large, high etc…

Some helpful words to use when writing your paragraphs:  

First, next, then, soon, during, after, later, eventually, and finally.  

For example:

During the Spring school holidays I spent the whole time with my family.

First, we went on many long walks. My feet ended up being so sore as we were doing over 10,000 steps per day!

Next, we had a family movie night. We watched Cruella and popped salty popcorn to share. Later, that night we camped in our backyard. It was cold so we made sure we had lots of blankets. I could hear the sirens from the nearby police station.

I enjoyed spending the school holidays with my family. I was happy to have a rest from my computer!

Please note: This task will need to be submitted on or before Thursday 7th October 3:30pm.

Please see the following rubric as a marking guide.

Might happen

I am learning to order chance statements correctly on a continuum.

I know I can do it when I can order chance statements correctly on a continuum.

Yesterday we focussed on things that will and won’t happen.

Today we are being introduced to the term ‘might happen’.

This term is a little different to the other 2.

If something might happen, it means there is a chance it could happen, but also a chance it may not happen, it is not definite.

Some examples of things that might happen today could include:

  • It rains today (weather can be unpredictable so you never really know what will happen)
  • Have pasta for dinner
  • Cry
  • See a friend at the park

Watch this short video to learn more about will happen, might happen, and won’t happen:

Independent Task

In your scrapbook turn you page length ways (so that it is wide not tall).

Label these 3 headings across the top:

Will happen                                Might happen                              Won’t happen

Using the statements below, write the sentence underneath the heading where it belongs.

  1. Brush my teeth
  2. Go to the park
  3. Watch a movie with a cow
  4. Eat some ice-cream
  5. See my teacher
  6. Breathe fire
  7. Fall over
  8. Drink water
  9. Drive a car

Once you have written each sentence under the correct heading you will have 3 sentences for each, double check that you have this.
