What I like doing at school Writing Assessment
Here is an assessment rubric and portfolio piece to assess early writing skills
The assessment is suited to early writing towards the end of Kindergarten(4) and the start of Pre-Primary(5) - it assess sounding out of words, spacing, punctuation and reading writing back.
I just completed with my Pre-Primaries at the end of term 1.
It includes all parts - the heading and explanation ('term 1' is changed to 'in this writing sample'), drawing box and assessment rubric
