After an inspiring conversation with the amazing Dorothy Burt, I have created Picasa albums to go with my sentences rubric.
Using the rubric, I plan to conference with the children about their work and agree on a year level their work is sitting at. Once they have decided, the students will then take a screenshot of their work and email it to the correlating Picasa album.
This will create a bank of exemplars with which we can refer to throughout the year. It also makes their learning visible and the students accountable for what they are producing.
Over the following week we will hopefully have some work to share so watch this space!
