Editing Checklist (for writing)

Editing Checklist (for writing)

I created this editing checklist for my students so that they can look over their writing, go through the checklist and make corrections, then they can put their initials in the column by each section. Students can even have a peer-partner look over their writing and make edit suggestions and put their initials in the column by each section as well. I like this checklist because it guides my students through their writing, and helps them be more accountable for the editing process. I adapted this writing checklist from the Lucy Caulkins writing program.

Primary Writing Curriculum Coverage Checklists! (Year 1-6)

Primary Writing Curriculum Coverage Checklists! (Year 1-6)

These checklists provides an academic overview of the writing curriculum content to be covered year-by-year from Year 1-6. I provided these to teachers in my own school, who marked the individual elements of the curriculum as they were covered (their aim was to ‘tick’ each element twice over an academic year). They have found it extremely useful, as it offers a useful breakdown of the curriculum statements into the individual components to be taught, which is not always as self-explanatory as one would assume! It is broken down into Composition, Vocabulary, Grammar and Punctuation, Spelling, and Handwriting sections. Please note that the spellings listed are indicative of the patterns to be learnt - it is not the exhaustive list. Furthermore, the composition section details our interpretation of what needs to be covered over a year, some schools vary from this. For this reason, the document is provided in Word, for easy editing. It is also provided as a PDF, to prevent formatting issues between computers. Hope that this proves helpful to you too!
