Other Work Samples for:

Pat has demonstrated limited knowledge of two-dimensional shapes. A computer program has been used to produce a picture containing some two-dimensional shapes but only one shape has been named and there is no description of how the shapes have been used. To progress further, Pat could identify all the shapes in the picture and describe how they have been used. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing below the expected standard at the end of Kindergarten.
