Prepping for teaching "Recount" next week, I came across this little ditty from a few years ago. Decided I will update and use it on Tuesday, as the timing is perfect.
Step one is to deconstruct the text, using the graphic organizer provided. (Kind of a backwards design approach.)
Then, students use the GO provided on page two to plan their own thanksgiving recount.
Please feel free to modify for use in your own classroom.
After writing for several teacher and multiple birth publications, including ETFO's Voice Magazine, Multiple Moments, and the Bulletwin, Vera turned her written attention to prolific blogging for some years, including BiB, "Learn to Fly with Vera!" and SMARTbansho . Homeschooling 4 was her travel blog in Argentina. She now spends more time on her Instagram (@schalgzeug_usw) than her blog (pictures are worth a thousand words?!)
