Other Work Samples for:

Cameron has demonstrated a good awareness of the features of a literary recount. Past tense and conjunctions have been used to clearly convey meaning, and an illustration has been provided to support the written text. Most letters have been accurately produced, and there is good directionality in the writing. There is some effective use of punctuation, and a variety of spelling strategies has been used. There is some evidence of re-reading and editing. To improve, Cameron could work on correct sentence structure, use a wider variety of sentence starters and more consistent spacing. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing above the expected standard midway through Kindergarten.
