Here are three student friendly 5th grade common core writing rubrics for informative/expository essays, opinion essays and personal/fictional narrative essays. These are editable word documenst for you to customize to your liking. I have a first read and second read grade listed. After my first read, I give the essays back to students, so they can see what sub-standards they should work on.Then they turn the essay in a for a second read with the corrections and improvements made. This also helps to facilitate differentiated writing instruction where groups can be set up based on needs in the different sub-standards for all 5th grade common core writing standards.
