Other Work Samples for:

Dale has demonstrated an excellent awareness of the features of a recount. Ideas have been appropriately sequenced and past tense has been used. Rich, descriptive language and conjunctions are evident. A picture has been used to support the ideas in the recount and a personal comment has been made. There is good directionality, and upper-case and lower-case letters have been correctly produced. The use of full stops is accurate but some capital letters have not been correctly used. Different strategies have been used to spell words. There is some evidence of self-correction. To develop further, Dale needs to work on the use of tense and the correct positioning of letters with tails such as ‘g’ and ‘y’. 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.
