My Success Recount

You are going to write a descriptive recount, telling our audience about a time you were successful.  
Describe a time we were successful
Success Criteria
Have you remembered…
- start with something that was said or thought
- Use punctuation (capital letters to start sentences and names and fullstops to end)
- to put everything in the right order
- use describing words and lots of detail.
- Re-read it to check it makes sense

Please don’t be first Please Please Please” I was saying in my head as were doing the Speech competition. It was really nerveracking when I was watching the other people. Oh and don’t get me started on how nervous I was when it was my turn! Then I was so relieved when my turn was finished. Next the winners got announced I was so proud of myself I came second.

First I sat and watched the people do their speeches. Man I was so nervous and proud of my friends at the same time. Everyone clapped after they had finished their speeches.

Suddenly they called my name, it was my turn. At that time my heart was pounding, my legs were shaking, time slowed down, I had zoned out, I tried to imagine everyone in their undies and bra, I took a big breath and said my speech.

“It was finally over” I said in my head.  Everyone clapped and cheered I was so proud of myself, my friends and teacher were proud too. You know now I don’t really think it was that scary anymore.

When they announced the winners I was so proud of myself I was going to burst. I came second as I sat down. My friends were saying congratulations to me.

At the end of the day I felt so proud of myself. I was glad it was over but also would have loved to do it all over again.

  1. Wowzas! I like that story Lulu. I like the things you wrote because it really made me feel like I was really on a rollercoaster mainly because I haven't been on a rollercoaster. But anyway Tino pai.
