Product Description

The hilarious picture book by Judith Viorst called Alexander and the terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad day, was the provocation for this writing unit. Students explore the concepts of resilience, bad things happen to everyone, bad feelings/pain will pass, how to seek comfort, dealing with disappointment and lessons learnt from difficult experiences. Using the recount writing genre, students reflect on personal experiences in their past and bring them together to create their own recounts with a unique twist. The lesson explores:
recount purpose, type and structure
accurate vocabulary choices 
sentence openers that hook readers
conjunctions beyond 'and'
time words that order events and go beyond 'then'
partner share and feedback
self reflection on achievement and future goal setting
exemplars and practise worksheets
wall posters
success criteria.
The resource is 51 pages and suits students aged 9-14.
