Other Work Samples for:

Tracy has demonstrated a good understanding of the procedure text type. Verbs have been used for commands and the steps have been correctly sequenced and numbered. Materials have been included and correct tense has been used. Appropriate vocabulary has been used and there is evidence of self-correction in the numbering. Full stops have been used appropriately but Tracy needs to work on the use of capital letters. The letters are consistent in size but there is some incorrect use of upper-case and lower-case letters. A variety of spelling strategies have been used but there is minimal use of sight words and the medial vowel sound in words such as ‘put’ and ‘rub’ has been omitted. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing above 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.
