Young Beginning Writers: Final Week Semester 2 – Victoria, Australia ( 5 & 6 Year Olds / Prep )

The final weeks of term two and semester one for 2012 were busy. Reports, Three Way Conferences and portfolios added to teaching and other responsibilities made the run to the holidays a marathon.  Time to post here has been rare so it’s great to be able to share some student writing completed in the the final week of term two by my Prep grade.

Herbert and Harry by Pamela Allen: Independent Book Response

Above Text: Herbert and Harry found treasure and they were brothers.

Above Text: Herbert and Harry are brothers. One day they found treasure.

Above Text: Herbert and Harry  found treasure and they were brothers.

Final Recount: Term 2 for inclusion in student portfolios.

 

These are random samples of independent writing. It’s great to see my students using a title, content and final personal comment without prompting. Using PM Writing Exemplars provides the scaffold my young writers require.

Cheers Nina
