Other Work Samples for:

Cameron has demonstrated an excellent awareness of the features of a recount. Ideas have been appropriately sequenced and past tense has been consistently used. Information has been recorded in complete sentences using adjectives to build a description. A picture has been used to support the ideas in the recount. There is good directionality and consistency in letter formation and size. Punctuation has been accurately used, and a variety of strategies including phonemic awareness and copying, have been used to spell words. To develop further Cameron should be encouraged to make greater use of adjectives and write more detailed sentences using time connectives. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing above the expected standard at the end of Kindergarten.
