Other Work Samples for:

Darcy has demonstrated an adequate awareness of the features of a recount. Past tense has been used but additional words indicating who, where and why could be included. Some sequencing is evident and conjunctions have been used to join ideas. Letter formation is mostly correct but the spacing between words could be better. Simple sentences have been created using sight words, and capital letters and full stops have been adequately used. Different strategies, such as sounding out, have been used to spell words. To develop further, Darcy should avoid overusing the conjunction ‘and’, include more time connectives and put in more descriptive detail about the event. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at 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.
