two children observe two children W r i t i n g
Part A: Gather information to assess the literacy development of two children
Observe two children (of same age) in a variety of activities and settings as they engage in reading and/or writing over the span of three days. For example, you could observe them during large-group story reading time, a small-group shared writing activity, when they retell their favourite story or engage in reading or writing as part of dramatic play in the learning centre.
Gather information to find out what the two children know and are able to do in terms of reading and/or writing. This could be information about their disposition to read and write, print and book awareness, alphabet knowledge, phonological awareness, their use of invented spelling when drawing and writing. For example, you could take anecdotal notes of specific literacy events. Collect samples of their drawing and writing.
Based on your observations and the information you have collected, analyse and assess the literacy development of the two children. Apply your knowledge of child development, and reading and writing development to explain the knowledge and skills they have acquired. Cite specific examples of the children’s reading and writing behaviour and/or use work samples to support your assessment.
Your write-up should include the following:
- Describe the two children including how similar or different they are in terms of their literacy development, interests and needs
Observation and documentation
- Explain the focus, context, setting and duration of your observations
- Describe the tools and methods of documentation
- Describe your observations and information that you have collected (e.g. from speaking with the class teacher/parents, checklists and portfolios)
- Include artefacts such as anecdotal records, photographs and work samples, if any

Explain your assessment of the children’s literacy development, citing specific examples to support your assessment
To maintain confidentiality, use pseudonyms instead of the children’s real names. Ensure that their names and any other identifying information are not included in the work samples, anecdotal records, notes and other forms of documentation.
Part B: Develop a proposal of individualised support for the two children
Drawing on your knowledge of child development and principles of developmentally appropriate practice, propose a plan of individualised support for the two children based on your assessment of their literacy development in Part A. This could include large-group instruction, small-group literacy activities and individual scaffolding in the classroom to support their literacy development. Note that this is a proposal and not a teaching plan.
Your proposal should address the following:
- Theoretical basis
Identify the theoretical orientation of your plan and describe the key concepts and assumptions underlying your proposed literacy activities, instruction and individual scaffolding. Based on the theoretical orientation of your plan, explain your approach to literacy instruction, comparing and contrasting it with other approaches.
[approaches can be found in Chapter 2 of my text : https://email@example.com:47.6]
- Conceptual understanding
Identify and describe the intended literacy goals for the two children in this proposed plan, taking into consideration what they know and are able to do based on your assessment in Part A. Explain the rationale for and describe the specific literacy activities, instruction and individual scaffolding to support their literacy development.
Part C: Propose a plan for fostering partnership with families to support the literacy development of these two children
[you may refer to Chapter 14 of my textbook : https://firstname.lastname@example.org:47.7]
Families play a crucial role in their children’s learning and development. Propose a plan for fostering partnership with the families of the two children to support their literacy development. This proposed plan should be should be specific to their individual needs, based on your assessment of their literacy development in Part A. Draw on current practices and policies of the centre, where applicable.
Your proposal should include the following:
- Explain the pedagogical considerations and rationale for your plan
- Describe what you think this partnership should look like
- Elaborate on how you would partner with the families to support the literacy development of the two children
- Explain what you would do to establish effective communication and build relationships with the families of the two children
