Writing - WALT write a recount about the marae trip!

W.A.L.T write a recount
Success criteria

Are the events in time order? E.g.

We met in the hall...I was waving out to the children as the bus sped off down the road...When we arrived at the Marae, we patiently waited at the gate ... After the pōwhiri I was busting to go to the toilet...

Is it in the past tenseE.g. Was, left, woke up, etc

Does it use time connectives?
e.g. next, meanwhile, within hours, soon afterwards, weeks later, etc.

Does it use powerful verbs? Powerful verbs can make your writing much much more exciting and dramatic!!

E.g. Grabbed          snatched           sprinted         scrambled          shouted         screamed     crawled     leapt          strode          yelled            exclaimed         glared

Is the last line linked to the introduction / does it have a good conclusion?
