For example:
The children will identify the characters in the story.
The child will retell the story in sequence. Objective 2. Communicate what they are seeing in a narrative form using as complete
sentences as possible, using both English and their home language

Assessment – How will you know whether the children Assessment of Objective 1: The children will be able to describe what they see in the

whether they are moving toward the foundations or
standards? Assessment of Objective 2: They will use as many words in a sentence as they are able,
communicating what they see in the sky.
Describe in specific detail, how you will assess the
children’s progression towards your stated objectives for
the week. For example, while retelling the story with
puppets, the child will use the character names and retell
the story in sequence.

Also describe how you will make further plans based on

the outcomes of these assessments.
