I use these editing stations and prompt sheets within my editing lessons to help support the children. When editing, each child spends 10 minutes on each station thinking specifically about what is on the sheet. This frees up their working memory and ensures that each child can focus on the editing at hand rather than getting hung up thinking about many different things. Free to take and use in anyway which you want.
I’m going to use this for early morning work to refresh the children on their grammar knowledge and to provoke discussion around the room. Welcome to take, use, edit, share etc. Welcome to make it more colourful too - haha!
