Other Work Samples for:

Alex has demonstrated a good understanding of the structure and features of a recount. Details about when, where, who and what have been provided in sequential order. Past tense has been used, and the language is varied. There is good control of directionality and spacing, and a range of spelling strategies has been used. To progress further, Alex could work on the use of punctuation, include more descriptive detail, vary sentence beginnings and use more complex sentences. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing above the expected standard midway through Kindergarten.
