Kelsey has demonstrated an excellent understanding of the features of a literary recount. The text has been well sequenced and complex sentences have been included. Past tense, descriptive language and a variety of conjunctions have been used. An illustration has been provided to support the written text. Most letters have been accurately produced, and there is good directionality and spacing in the writing. There is some effective use of punctuation. To improve, Kelsey could work on consistent use of punctuation and use a wider variety of spelling strategies. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing above the expected standard at the end of 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.
