This is a summative checklist for Australian Curriculum English in Literacy, Language and Literature. Only the sub strands are listed with one example of an outcome for each (see preview) as it is not only unrealistic but also overwhelming to assess each individual outcome.
There is a column to record each students' overall grade and effort. Therefore, you can use this when entering data into your end of semester reports!
Also contained is a 'Student Profile Sheet' - this allows you to make individual anecdotal notes on each student. It includes a break down of areas to identify for intervention:
Decoding & Spelling
Writing Skills and
Handy to whip out at a parent interview if they are questioning WHY little Johnny scored a D in his English report.
Remember, this is an overview checklist, therefore you should still keep daily anecdotal notes and complete regular formative assessments. Use this a summative assessment. You should only tick off each outcome once you have seen the student demonstrate it a number of times across a number of contexts.
Use this in conjunction with the Year 3 English Forward Planner: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Year-3-English-Australian-Curriculum-Planning-Template-A3-729783
REMEMBER: THESE ARE A3 SIZE DOCUMENTS: You will need to adjust your printer / Photocopier settings accordingly to print on A4 size. As a general rule: Go to print; page set up; scale down to 70%; select A4 size paper.
