Drew has demonstrated sound knowledge of two-dimensional shapes. A computer program has been used to produce a picture incorporating various shapes. The shapes used to create the house have been named but there is no description of how they have been used. Lines have also been mentioned, perhaps suggesting some confusion about what constitutes a two-dimensional shape. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at the expected standard midway through Kindergarten.
