-Today we are going to remind ourselves about what a recount looks like. A recount is a piece of writing that retells events that have happened in the correct order. 

-Read these recounts. Remember that recounts need to have time adverbials, conjunctions, correct punctuation and they would usually include feelings too. If you have a printer, you can ask your adult to print the recounts and underline the time adverbials, conjunctions and any ambitious vocabulary (wow words).

-If you would like a challenge, explain to your adult which text is the best recount and say why.
