Other Work Samples for:

Darcy has demonstrated a limited awareness of the features of a literary recount. Words relevant to the story have been chosen but sentences have not been used and meaning has not been effectively conveyed. Most letters have been correctly produced, and there is adequate top-to-bottom directionality in the writing but the spacing needs work. To improve, Darcy could create complete sentences to describe what happens in the story and work on improving left-to-right directionality. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing below the expected standard midway through Kindergarten.

Foundation Statement strands

The following strands are covered in this activity:

  • Writing
    Students write with an increasing awareness of the nature, purpose and conventions of written language. They produce simple texts that demonstrate an awareness of the basic grammar and punctuation needed. Students know and use letters and sounds of the alphabet to attempt to spell known words and use most lower and upper case letters appropriately to construct sentences. Students explore the use of computer technology to construct texts.
  • Talking and Listening
    Students mix and talk informally with peers, teachers and known adults. They give short talks and interact effectively in the classroom and in groups. Students listen with attentiveness to follow simple instructions and ask relevant questions. They express ideas clearly, demonstrating an emerging awareness of how people use spoken language for different purposes. They explore the way familiar spoken texts are constructed and the features of these texts.
